I hope you had a blessed and prosperous and joyful Thanksgiving holiday this past week. I spent Thanksgiving weekend with Quentin and his cousins. We had Thanksgiving dinner at his cousin’s lovely new home in New Rochelle, and it was nice to be out of the city.

I love getting dressed up for holidays! For my Thanksgiving outfit, I wore my favorite new skirt by Sea New York (I really love this label, so when I found the skirt on sale, I couldn’t help but buy it!) and paired it with a sweater I’ve had for a while. Mixed prints, jacquard fabric, and a really cool, but really modest fit? Those are some of my favorite things to find in a piece of clothing, and this skirt has all three! Oh, and then there are the pockets…

This whole Thanksgiving weekend, I’ve felt like I’ve been with family. Even though Quentin and I dated for a long time, we haven’t had a chance to spend lots of time together with our extended families. I’m still getting to know his aunts and uncles and cousins, but it’s been such a blessed experience. They’ve really taken me in, and it never feels weird, you know? Like, no one’s forcing it. There’s genuine love there, and I so appreciate that. And I feel the same way! Quentin’s family has adopted me, and I’ve adopted them too.

It’s been a great couple of days, and now it’s back to the grind. But I’m feeling a renewed sense of purpose and I’m well-rested, so I’m not experiencing a case of the Mondays today. Goodness, the past few weeks have been so insane. I had a ton to do at work, and I’ve been feeling really confused about God’s plan for my life. I feel like in the past few days, thanks to some great conversations both with Q’s cousins and my younger brothers, God has been revealing to me (again…) what He wants me to do, and I’m ready to do it. I’ve been sitting on an idea for almost a year, and it’s time to start moving from idea to reality. It’s going to be tough, but I’ve got support from my family (old and new), and I feel like it’s now or never. I’ll be laying the groundwork over the next few months, and we’ll see how things go.

Keep me in prayer, ya’ll! And again, I hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving.

  • I am glad your holiday was nice and not forced. That forced feeling can be so uncomfortable. ESPECIALLY at holiday family gatherings. #EEek But that’s so nice you feel renewed and a sense of clarity in regard to your Godly calling. I find that so encouraging & thanks for sharing. I’ll be praying for you. I LOVE your outfit!! The way that mustard yellow hits that navy blue is so perfect. I love that color combo.

    • Thanks so much Amma. I HATE when things feel forced and uncomfortable, and thankfully that hasn’t really happened with Q’s family. Such a blessing! And thanks so much for the prayers…I’ll need ’em =)

    I love your lipstick! What’s the name of it?

    • Thanks Odessa! This is MAC’s Riri Woo. I don’t think they sell the Riri version anymore, but Ruby Woo is essentially the same thing. It’s a gorgeous color.
