OOTD: Thanksgiving Prep

With Thanksgiving just a few days away and my time now being split between wrapping things up at my office during this short work-week and preparing dishes and desserts to bring to the gathering planned at my mother’s house on Thursday, I only just recently realized I haven’t put much thought into my outfit I’m […]

Happy (Almost) Halloween, everyone!
