Coming Home

 Forever 21 Sweater, SOLD jeans, Liz Baker oxfords, New York and Company Sunglasses, Vintage Necklace

 Lately I've been so caught up in my career goals and living my life in Philadelphia, I forget that the things that mean the most to me are at home in York. During high school, I always swore that I would be one of those people who puts their careers first but as I get older I'm starting to realize that may not be the most important thing in life. The love we share with others will be more remembered than our work ethic and as somebody who is trying to newly balance things in life, I'm trying to reming myself to take time to talk to my loved ones each day, even during the fast life of the city. These were taken when I was home last, back in October on a walk that Derek and I went on. It's funny how the little things in life are the moments we remember and cherish the most. 

I hope you all have a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow and don't forget to thank your friends and family for being a part of your lives! Enjoy the pumpkin pie! xoxo
