A Moment of Appreciation

Lucky Girl:  1980s navy and black checked swing dress, 1960s black leather purse, Nine West black leather peeptoe pumps, 
silver hoop earrings, silver bangle bracelet, silver Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses, 1960s navy wool coat (shown below)

Over this Thanksgiving holiday, I couldn't help but pause and appreciate how lucky I am.  Things have come so far with GlamAmor and not a day goes by that I don't appreciate being able to do what I love.  Of course none of that would be possible without the support of my amazing friends and family--thank you!

Other moments of gratitude?  Well, I'm perpetually grateful that I live minutes from the beach where I love to surf...

...and minutes from the mountains where I love to hike.

The weather was so beautiful that I spent some of the holiday doing that very thing.  Will Rogers State Park has trailheads galore leading into the Santa Monica Mountains and is one of my favorite places.  I feel I'm walking in the footsteps of Hollywood history.  After all, Will's house is still there and the polo field in front hosted many many a star both as player and spectator-- including Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, and Joan Crawford. It can also be seen in several classic movies.

Of course it's hard not to appreciate having a convertible, especially when we have weather like this

After dinner on Thursday, Kevin and I went for a walk along the beach and enjoyed a gorgeous sunset.  When it's this beautiful here, it's hard to believe that some of the country was actually being blanketed in snow!  The only thing missing from the evening was Daisy, who was home resting after her own busy day at the beach.  I absolutely adore her.  Isn't she the best?  

Again, much love and thanks to everyone in my life.  I hope you were able to find your own moment of appreciation this holiday!
