Today's outfit is from Anthropologie (not shoes and jewelry) and it is one of my favorite outfits that I own!! I have had it for 2 years and wore it to a thanksgiving dinner in 2014. I am planning on wearing it again this year! It's just perfect since it is both elegant and festive! Sort of like I imagine the first thanksgiving dinner between the Pilgrims and the Indians was. Sidenote, I have been OBSESSED with learning about the Pilgrims and Indians since I first learned about them in kindergarten! (Really, I'm not kidding!) There's just something inspiring about it all - thinking back years ago to when the Pilgrims traveled to an unknown place and encountered the Indians who already inhabited the land and who were complete opposites in every way than the newcomers. Yet they helped each other learn new things and worked together to put on a special feast to celebrate and give thanks for the new friends and prosperity that was found when both groups worked alongside one another, for the common good. It seems that peace was easier to find back then considering how divided our country is today. My prayer for this thanksgiving is for our country to be united under God, that He would give us all peace for trusting in the plan He has for us, and the wisdom to do as He has commanded, that we "love one another." I truly believe that if we all did that, most of the issues and problems we have could be resolved and there might be a little more peace and understanding from all. (Because I really do want World Peace, ya know?) Anybody else just flashback to Miss Congeniality?! Me too! But, I really am so thankful for each and every one of you who take the time to comment on my posts and instagrams. I love getting to know all of you! Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!! Love you all!
