What I wore to Thanksgiving dinner at my aunt and uncle’s house atop a hill in rural Vermont. Happiness is having familial contingents from both sides located in the Green Mountain State.
Happiness is picking up right where you left off.
Immense amounts of laughter, copious glasses of bold, big-bodied wine, and a deep, soul connection with a petite Beagle who stole my heart—take away the atomic hangover I had this morning and it was perfect.
You may remember this dress from here, one of my all-time favorite posts ever last year. I was so excited ShopBop featured it on their blog How to Wear Resort Florals Now; check it out if you have not already.
I have no idea what kind of fur this is ($24 on eBay 10 years ago), nor do I care too much to. In college, I bought a floor-length, black rabbit fur coat from a Salvation Army for $7 and wore it to an apartment party on a chilly night. Some activist-in-training mowed me down, a can of Natural Light vibrating in her quivering hand. She feigned tears at my homicidal garment and shouted me out of my plastic lawn chair, exiling me from the party. Looking back, I remember shrugging and wishing her luck out there in the big, bad world.

Hopefully you all had splendid holidays. I’m thankful for health this year… just health. And the health of those I love.
