Thanksgiving Recap & Retail!

Hey Friends!!!

I hope you all had the best Thanksgiving!!

I stepped away from the blog over the past two weeks very unintentionally!

I hit my “busy season” with holiday prep & taking holiday photos for sweet clients over at Kristen Cochran Photography! Plus, just keeping up with wife, mommy, and teacher responsibilities! 🙂

I’m so, so thankful for all the “hats” that I get to wear! My heart is filled with so, SO much gratitude this Thanksgiving!

Today, I am going to recap our Thanksgiving + share some gift guides for the holiday season!

Thanksgiving recap..

Last week, we had an early little Thanksgiving dinner at Wades, just the 3 of us!

Brewer loves to shout Amen after blessing the meal! It’s the sweetest sound ever!

We started Thanksgiving week just like this! Lol! Brewer’s essentials for a little wagon ride!

Look at this little turkey in the tub!

On Tuesday, we went out and did some Christmas shopping!

Brewer came too! He was such a good little elf! We stopped at DaDa’s favorite place in Greenville: Midtown Deli..

And Brewer deserved a treat from Crumble cookie! It was a successful shopping day!

On Thanksgiving morning, there was only one way to begin the day! The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!!

We spent the day with Harry’s family here in Sparkle City!

This is the result of someone who did Thanksgiving the right way! Lol!!

We came home and changed into our Christmas pajamas! 

And we watched the greatest movie of all time!

It was the perfect little Thanksgiving Day spent with family!


How is everyone spending Black Friday?! I may venture out for an hour! That’s about all I can handle! Lol! Other than that, we will be online shopping, staying in pajamas, and watching Christmas movies here at home! 🙂

Here are some gift guides that I put together:

Let me leave you with some of our fall, family photos! Thankful just really isn’t the word to describe it. I’m so grateful for the ministry of my boys:

My heart is beyond full!

“I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart. I will tell of all your marvelous works.” Psalm 9:1

This fall also marked ONE entire year of my photography business! The Lord has provided so many blessings and neat things through my small business. I have met the most incredible people, seen gorgeous places, and learned a lot! It’s truly been an amazing year! And everyone who was a part of that journey, from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU! It has meant the world to me and my family!
