My Day of Thanks

I love a lazy day at home with little on my agenda and this lazy day consisted of a trip to the gym and not much else until I ventured out to spend Thanksgiving with some friends.

I got into the spirit of things and put up my little pink tree.

Kate Spade dress, Glenda Gies handbag, Spanx lace tights, Stuart Weitzman boots
For this Thanksgiving, my family was a bit scattered all over the place.  My brother in New York, my sister in Florida with my dad and my mother also in Florida but hours away by car.  So I decided to stay put in Boston and celebrate with my dear friend and her family.  Instead of the typical Thanksgiving at home, we were going out for dinner so I had to gussy up.

I wore this bright pink Kate Spade dress that I hadn't worn since my birthday almost a year ago.  I was lucky enough to get these suede Stuart Weitzman boots at friends and family awhile ago at Bloomies and they look good and are quite comfy too.

I accessorized with a fab chunky black bead necklace and vintage inspired handbag by Glenda Gies.

But enough about the clothes for now.  We had a ridiculously good five course meal at Meritage at the Boston Harbor Hotel and it was truly a lovely afternoon.  We all acknowledged how lucky and thankful we are to have each other.  I'm thankful every day for my family and friends who love and care for me but it's lovely to have a holiday like Thanksgiving that instead of celebrating commercialism and consumption celebrates family and friends.  I'm grateful to have had this day to reinforce how very lucky and fortunate I am.
