What is Thanksgiving without a gratitude post.
When life gets tough, just think of all the things that you are grateful for and somehow things always seem to get better.
Recently I've been grateful for:

Simply Pink Lemonade

Great Home Teachers

My College

My Amazing Job

Gossip Girl

Long Sock



Hot Chocolate

Warm Blankets

Red Lipstick

My Family

Answered Prayers

Straight Teeth

My Religion

Mac and Cheese

My Amazing Friends




The Book of Mormon

My Camera

Bon Iver

Modern Day Prophets

People That Say "Thank You" When I Do Something Nice For Them

Traffic Lights (sometimes)

A Free Country

I have SO much to be thankful for.

I'm so glad to be home!
Yesterday I went on a spa date with my mom and sister Paige.
Talk about a much needed break.
I was sitting by the pool in palm springs while I read e-mails on my phone about how campus was being closed due to a huge winter storm.
Never in my life have I been so happy to be in the sun.

Robes. Facials. Saunas. Lemon Water.

Then we hit up the outlet mall to go shopping for Jerusalem.
Shirts that reach my collar bone and cargo pants that I can swim in.
Thats what I'll be living in for the next four months.
But how can I complain when I'll be in some of the most amazing spots on earth.

As for the rest of the weekend, I plan on sleeping in, catching up on the latest flicks as well as the classics, thanksgiving with my extended family, and saying goodbye to one of my best friends for two years. Bitter Sweet.

Fall to winter. I'm so sad to see fall go... but excited to see what winter has in store. It's finally cold enough for Hot Cocoa and my winter playlist is being built.

I love love love love love love love love love love love love love Fall

Its soon coming to an end. Seeing as the weather man announced snow on wed. I'm feeling a bit under the weather knowing that in a matter of days I will cease to walk home under burning yellow and red trees, collecting leaves the whole way home.

So this afternoon I tried to capture a bit of the fall spirit so that even when the snow comes and the warmth leaves... I'll still have a small piece of it.

miss. you. already.

P.S. Fall Must Listens

Bon Iver - Skinny Love
He is We - Happily Ever After
Taylor Swift - Never Grow Up
He is We - I Wouldn't Mind
Cat Power - Wonderwall
Seabear - I Sing I Swim
