Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It makes me reflect on all the blessings in my life. As a busy mom with a growing business, sometimes I feel like my life only runs at turbo speed. But Thanksgiving is a day where I get to step away, forget about my mile-long to-do list, put down my phone, and just spend it with my family, eating good food, sharing stories, laughter, and love. What could be better?

My Daughter's Favorite Books

Lainey reading

My daughter, Lainey, who is six, loves to read. She's still perfecting her skills, but she couldn't be more excited about it. I think reading has unlocked a new world for her. She no longer has to ask, "What does that say?" and I think that makes her feel powerful and independent.
