hipster thanksgiving


Hey all!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. This getting dark early thing has really been a deterrent. And you know I'm not a morning person. So anyway, I'm writing to you back at school- flew back to Wake early this morning and now we're 10 lbs heavier on the other side of Thanksgiving.

It was a much needed break, got to see a lot of people I love & now it's nose back to the grindstone to bang out these last three weeks. Can you believe that? Oh so this title- we had a potluck dinner here at school before we went home for break. It was fabulous. I am THANKFUL to have friends who can cook so well! Amen, right? Anyway I wore some variation of this outfit to our dinner and my friend said, You look very hipster Thanksgiving. I thought it was perfect.




So many things to be thankful for- like this boy, my family, and of course you all! What are you thankful for this year?


PS. I think my hair is getting lighter, is that possible? I thought as you got older it was the other way around!

sweater weather



Fall, you're my favorite! You can find me on campus hopping from crunchy leaf pile to crunchy leaf pile. Or come over to my apartment and you can share a 2 gallon apple cider with me.



There's this SNL skit with Maya Rudolph that's called Bronx Beat, it was a recurring bit and there was one episode where they talked about sweater weather. I tried to find it on YouTube but to no avail! Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

I was diagnosed with depression my junior year of high school & my mom used to make me watch comedy shows with her to keep me from running through the endless stream of negative thoughts in my head. And for some reason, sweater weather was the only thing which could make me laugh!
