Best Black Friday Deals + The little things

give thanks

Sometimes it truly is the little things in life that remind me how much I have to be grateful for in the grand scheme of things. I figure there is no better time than now to share a few bits and pieces of my life that I’ve been especially thankful for as of late.

A friend reaching out to tell me that she thought my post was great and sounded just like me

Good music like this song by Barcelona

An unexpected email with the positive words of encouragement from a special gal in Chicago

The opportunity to ask all of my burning questions to a few people who inspire me to chase something new

The promise of a fresh start (in more ways than one)

Long weekends with no set plans after the holiday with family and friends

Pete and his willingness to do anything for me (including pulling my socks off my tired feet before crawling into bed at night)

The supportive gals at Tulip who picked me to help celebrate their 1,000 likes milestone on Facebook

I know that some people say it’s cliche to express thanks at this time of year, but isn’t that what Thanksgiving is for? We live in such a busy world and if someone (like me) needs a little reminder, so be it. The important part is that I’m focused on it now and I can work on expressing thanks all year round.

What are you thankful for? Whether it be big or small, I would love to hear it!


Below are a few of the best Black Friday Deals I’ll be hitting up!

Get 50% off one full-priced item at Banana Republic with code BRFIFTY and 40% off the rest of your cart with code BRFORTY. So many great sweaters I’ve had my eye on.

Save 20% at Lulu & Georgia when you spend $250 with code PUMPKINPIE20

Design Darling – use code MANYTHANKS for 20% off through Monday! This lamp? Swoon.

50% off at Gap with code BLKFRIDAY. That includes every. little. thing. Including this reversible sports bra!

ASOS is getting me with their scarves this year. You can score this faux fur infinity scarf at 30% off using code TGIBF and if you see something else you love, the code will work for it too!

Save up to 50% off just about everything over at Old Navy. I’ve got my eye on this quilted vest that rings in at just $14.  #nobrainer

Happy shopping!

    Happy Thanksgiving! It’s always so amazing to look back over a year and see how much there is to be thankful for, regardless how many curveballs we have been thrown. Enjoy the rest of 2014 and I can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for you! xo
