I thought it’d be fun to escape reality this morning and write up my personal dream wish list. These are investment pieces I’d humbly request from Santa if I had no student loans and Simon had a trust fund (wouldn’t it be lovely…?). The pieces below are “me” through and through and are timeless pieces I’d still proudly treasure 30 years down the road. Read on to see the extravagent gifts of my big, shiny dreams.

Now that we’ve all consumed our weight in pumpkin pie, I thought we’d move on to Black Friday.

Just dropping in to wish all my family and friends in America a happy Thanksgiving! I was feeling a bit homesick this morning so I’ve taken the day off to cuddle with Alfred, read The Nightingale (almost finished!), and watch The Queen. We’ll be FaceTiming with my family in California later which is sure to lift my spirits. This year I’m feeling extra thankful for my sweet husband, Simon, who always makes me laugh with his naughty British humor and spoils me rotten. I’m also thankful for the incredible opportunity to live in Denmark, for our health, our beautiful home, and for the companionship of my grumbly pug. I am so thankful for all of you as well. Your thoughtful comments mean more than you know and I am eternally grateful for your friendship and readership. And now, we’re off to eat barbecue with our Danish neighbors! Wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving!
