This weekend was filled with so much joy. I want to start there because I honestly went into the weekend with a broken heart filled with hurt and pain. Finding that joy can be so hard, but I filled my time with family, friends, and fun activities. I separated myself from the things that are causing the emotional pain and sometimes that’s what we have to do, a loving separation, so that we don’t let that person, or situation steal our happiness.
On Saturday we celebrated the life of my Grandpa, for someone who didn’t think people really cared about him had countless family, friends, co-works, and past acquaintances show up to honor the life and legacy he left behind. Though there were tears they were of joy because we know that one day we will see him again in heaven. It’s ok to cry out of sadness or joy. It doesn’t make you weak. It’s healthy for you to have that emotional release. Something I shared on my Instagram this weekend and I’ll share here: Take each moment of your life and just be thankful, and live each day being humble.
Sunday morning, Jacob and I started with coffee in the park where we also shot the looks for this week! The rest of the day was just letting loose with friends at the pool. We enjoyed games, football, and food! Smiling is good for the soul and there was lots of that! I hope that, even though it’s Monday, you can find a small time today to just smile!
Here are some things I’m loving:
This week our friend group is getting together for a Friends-giving so I’ve been gathering some ideas for recipes and decor, and I just love this table set up! You can find more fall, pumpkins, and Thanksgiving food on my Pinterest board here.
Speaking of Thanksgiving, aren’t we all starting to ask ourselves what we may be wearing? We all typically go for something a little looser on this Holiday because we know we are about to indulge in some delicious food-which is totally acceptable! I found this top that would be so perfect and under $60!
