Thirteen.

I've decided to swap two unworn 30 for 30 items, and this dress is now in it. I'm still not sure if I'll complete it, but for now I'm still trying. I'll keep this short and sweet because I have family over. This is my Thanksgiving outfit. It's actually a very orange dress, but it looks rather red in the pictures. We're having a lovely, relaxing rainy day here in Michigan.

Jeff and I had two Thanksgivings, one with his family and one with mine. For awhile, I thought this was such a hassle. But this year it hit me, I am so lucky to have to have not one, but two incredible families. I am so thankful for my family and all we have been through together. And now I am so thankful to feel so welcomed and loved by Jeff's family. I will no longer look at multiple holiday festivities as an inconvience, but rather a blessing to have so much love in my life.

One more thing I'm thankful for, this blog and all of you. I love blogging and this community has been so supportive. Thank you so much for all of your sweet words over the past few months, I am truly grateful! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday!

That is a nice dress and I think it is great that you swapped it into the 30. I hope you keep up with the challenge. You are almost halfway there!
