being thankful



Looooooong gone are the Thanksgiving Eve’s that are considered the biggest party night of the year. (I know, I’m only 24, but I am SO over that scene in New York City.) Instead, I hang out with a lot of wine and my nephews all night long (or until like 8 when they go to bed).

Today, I wanted to take a break from all of the craziness of the online sales (but don’t worry, come back tomorrow for some fun!), whatever is happening in the word, and any other distractions to just focus on the good things in life and enjoy time with my family.

On this Thanksgiving, here’s just a few things I’m extra thankful for.

Being able to tell my mom, dad, and sister that I love them whenever I feel like it.

Still laughing hysterically with my best friends of TEN YEARS.

Getting to make the best memories with the guy of my dreams. 

My 4 nephews and 1 niece (who are actually my cousins but, besides the point) who make every holiday so much more fun than they used to be.

Working for a really awesome company and doing what I love every day.

Creating a space that people want to come to every day, and connecting with great people that make me want to do better.

Getting to live in the best city in the world, New York City.

And last but not least, THANK YOU for all of the unreal support for me and Pink Champagne Problems over the years. I cannot believe I started this blog when I was 19 years old, and some of you have been with me since the very beginning – how fun is that!? And for those of you who are new to Pink Champagne Problems, I can’t wait to to continue giving YOU the content that you come back to see every day.

  • Last night in my usual 6:30 @soulcycle class, @mantaszvinas said something that just stuck. He said, “Say your resolutions out loud.” And in that moment I realized something: I never said my resolution out loud to anyone. How am I supposed to be held accountable?
So in 2019, everything I do is going to have a purpose. Every blog post I publish, every Instagram post I curate, every email I send, every argument I make,  every thing I put in my body. WHATEVER. It’s all going to have a PURPOSE. Resolutions could be heavy weight that is constantly on your mind — but that’s not what I want this year to be. 2019 is going to be another year of growth, happiness, success, and yes, probably even failure. But damn, I’m ready for it🙌🏼
Your turn. Say your resolutions out loud. Let’s hold each other accountable👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
