To help inspire your outfit and mindset this Thanksgiving my team and I would love to share with you what inspires us. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is an incredible important holiday to me. Not just for what it means, but for everything I’ve gained through it. Growing up, it was always hallmarked by traditional Thanksgiving festivities: school reenactments, food, Godfather marathon, etc. As I got older, my family traditions changed. Being a small but close family of four, my father would always tell us stories about being away at college and not having anywhere to go for the holidays. Many years later, he always makes sure that everyone has a place to go and that there is always enough room at the table. As a result, through the years we’ve had many different faces from all over at our Thanksgiving table. We’ve had exchange students from Japan, New Zealand, and France; beloved neighbors, friends, and acquaintances. Anyone that comes to our table always leaves as family. So while I might have a small immediate family, I have a large and lovely extended family. Thanksgiving is more than the beautiful tradition that was founded. It’s a amazing opportunity to grow in love, life, family, and to remember some inspiring wisdom from Mother Teresa, ‘If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.'” -Laura
