I can’t say it’s “always been my dream” to go to New York Fashion Week, but ever since I entered the world of fashion blogging in 2016 and started following certain bloggers religiously, I’ve had this itch to partake in the madness that is fashion week. I mean, you get to dress up in fancy (and a little crazy) outfits, you tour around NYC in the true New Yorker chaos, and you get to experience high-end fashion with some of the most stylish ladies on the block.

Of course, I loved all the delicious food and pie and time spent with family; however, unlike Christmas or Easter, I never anxiously waited for Thanksgiving or spent weeks preparing for it. This year is different. College has given me a newfound perspective and appreciation for the holiday—I’ve been anticipating it for weeks, longing for the homecooked food, irksome siblings, and smell of my own house that I always took for granted in years past. There is just so much for which to be grateful, but sadly I think a lot of us often forget to celebrate that. Continue reading “Practicing Gratitude”
