I love most in this world, enjoying a cozy evening, delicious food

  1. Cute post! I'm loving that your boys did the place cards. I put pictures of the same thing on my post for Thanksgiving too. It seems like the perfect job for small boys.

    Great blog!

  2. Truly adorable! Such frame-able moments. Your cute outfit has me rethinking mine...I must have dressed for comfort. Yes, that's what I did.

  3. p.s. If you see this on replay on PBS, it's record-worthy. It's a two-parter.

  9. seriously dying over the skirt! ahhh.....I'm now even more convinced to order. I've been wanting it in the green, but after seeing your navy one I'm re-thinking the choice especially since I have that exact navy ruffle blouse :) Have a great weekend!

  10. thanks girls!!

    danielle ~ my outfit...the cardigan and blouse are JCrew but from several years back, the skirt is from Anne M. Cramer {http://annemcramer.com/spring2011.aspx}, i bought it this summer, but it is still available.

    {Tiffany, I wore it because the back is elastic! Ha!! My version of stretchy pants}

    xo, Tessa

  16. I was wondering about your dining room chandelier. Did it come with the house or do you know anything about it? Much thanks. Cathy

  17. Hi Cathy, We celebrated Thanksgiving at my parent's house. I don't know where the chandelier comes from. My Mom reads all the comments on the blog, so if she is reading and she remembers she can leave the manufac. name in the comment section. It was bought many years ago though. Thanks! Tessa

  18. Looks like you enjoyed a fantastic Thanksgiving. I almost wore that skirt on Thanksgiving too, but funny enough I have another skirt you have - that red/orange cord Anthropologie skirt - I ended up wearing that with a J. Crew oatmeal colored sequin tank and my jean jacket and cute black t-strap heels. Your little men are too cute!

  19. This is for Cathy:
    The manufacturer for the chandelier is Hubbardton Forge. It was purchased more than 10 years ago at Central Light in Cincinnati.

  20. Beautiful memories for the holiday. I just love your outfit and especially the sweet, sweet pictures of you and your family. I look forward to reading your blog and love it when I have a couple posts to catch up on in one day. The unplanned picture of you and your husband laughing is perfect!
