What I Love About Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving my turkey-loves!  This is an incredible life, and to have one day dedicated to the meditation of a grateful heart and an open mind is beautiful. 

For those of us in the wedding industry, Thanksgiving officially kicks off Engagement Season - that magical, mystical two month period filled with proposals, sparkling rings, and excitement that lasts all the way through New Year's Eve...And even Valentine's Day!

I have to be honest, I always hated holiday engagements.  I would roll my eyes at the cliche, and silently admonish the proposer for not being more original.  

But in 2011, after many (many!) years together my then-boyfriend-now-husband surprised me with a proposal of my own as we sat around the dinner table, surrounded by family and friends. He even managed to ask my father for permission!  One year to the day later (and one Engagement Baby later!) we were married in a beautiful wedding at the Four Seasons Las Vegas. 

This year, my family and I celebrate Thanksgiving, our Engagement Anniversary, and our Wedding Anniversary all on the same day, sitting around the same table we were at when he asked.  I am the luckiest girl in the world.  

In the spirit of Thanks and Giving, I offer you all a season of laughter and light, wonder and excitement...And, as always....love.
