Thankful Thursday

To all of my fellow American friends out there: Happy Thanksgiving! I hate to pick and choose, but here are the top three things that deserve heaps of thanks.

  1. Finding loveDCIM100GOPRO

This man is truly exceptional. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner. Many thanks go to this fella for pushing me to get better and better every day.

2. CreativityPeach Wall-0721

I’ve been so lucky to befriend some amazing, talented, and creative people (you know who you are!). Thank you all for inspiring me to live a more creative life.

3. Bitter sweet endings and new beginnings Jessie At Urbanity-2064

You know the saying as one door closes, another opens? This couldn’t be more true! Thank you to all the people that taught me everything I know. You were the force that drove me to follow my heart in a new career direction. Saying goodbye to Urbanity was hard, but ultimately it made me a happier person today.

What are you thankful for? Let’s hear about it in the comments!



Thankful Thursday

It’s that time of year again! In leu of this thankful holiday, here ten things I’m truly loving in my life right now.

10. Free Blue Bottle coffee at my new office!

9. A Beautiful Mess’ recipe for Sour Cream Pumpkin Muffins (my true basic bitch weakness).

8. Related to #10, all the adorable puppies running around Runway Incubator. So much cuteness, its a wonder I can get any work done!

7. Getting back into shape. Started my running routine last weekend and I’m loving it!

6. It’s finally cool enough to layer in the city. Time for chunky scarves, comfy sweaters, thick knit tights, and cozy coats galore!

5. Some good things come from sad places. I like to keep things light on the blog, so I’ll spare the details. I will say that I’m happy I get to hang out with close friends, meet new people, go to new places, and get to know myself all over again.

4. My new ink by Zeph Fishlyn is so gorgeous it brings a tear to my eye.

3. Hydration! (Hey, don’t underestimate the power of a little H2O.)

2. My new nightly skin regime that’s left my face baby soft and blemish free. Once a week, I endure a painful Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, cleanse with my new favorite face wash Burts Bees Sensitive Face Wash, and followed up by rubbing a couple drops of Palmers Skin Therapy Oil (the makers of the best Coco Butter lotion of all time, in my humble opinion).

1. The time spent away from my electronic devices. Enjoying a warm meal, getting some much needed errands done, and conversation that’s uninterrupted by a computer or smart phone screen is sheer bliss.

What are you thankful for? Hope you all have a very lovely Thanksgiving!

Thankful Thursday

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to dedicate this post to all of my readers and followers. I’m so thankful that I have you; the reason I write and continue to think up something new everyday. You all have made Poor Jessie Ann possible and I certainly don’t know where this little blog of mine would be without you. Have a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!
