Good morning, and Happy Thanksgiving to those of you here in the U.S. celebrating today!

I just wanted to pop in real quick before I start baking pies and prepping Thanksgiving dinner to tell you all how very much I appreciate each and every one of you. I seriously cannot believe how many women tune in every day as I prattle on about fashion and my daily comings and goings.

I realize, though, that this is so much more than a fashion blog; it’s also a community. I love to see you guys interacting with each other in the comments, and the support you give me on a daily basis is downright humbling at times.

It is always at the very moment when I’m feeling overwhelmed by inadequacy and insecurity that I will receive an email from someone telling me what a difference this blog has made in her life — which is always kind of surreal because I really don’t think I do anything terribly important here. But I do pour my heart and soul into this space, and I can tell that many of you see that and respond in kind, and I appreciate it more than you know.

I am so grateful for this you guys and this space, and also for the blessings of family, health, and good friends.

I realize that not everyone is in a place to feel especially thankful today. Perhaps you’re going through rough times, you’ve lost a loved one, your marriage is crumbling, your kids are struggling… whatever it is, I hope you can find something to rejoice about today and that you get to spend some quality time with family and friends.

Thank you all for tuning in once again, and have a lovely Thanksgiving day!!!
