So I've been putting off blogging for the past couple of weeks...first because I was without power for a week due to Hurricane Sandy. And then after that, because I just couldn't get myself to write about shoes and weddings and other pretty things when all I could think about was the houses burned to the ground in Breezy Point, and the mom in Staten Island whose babies were snatched from her arms by the aggressive flood waters.

So many people lost so much and I couldn't get the images out of my head. I can't imagine what it must be like to attempt moving on with life once your babies are gone, your home is gone, all of your hope for life and your future...gone.

Then it hit me that life does go on. It has to. And all we can do is be thankful for everything we do have and to help the less fortunate in any and every way possible, whether that's donating time, money, or support. So I will do that to the best of my ability. And I will not let a day go by without being thankful. Thankful for my precious baby girl who has made my life worth living. Thankful for my loving husband who keeps me calm and sane (or at least tries to). Thankful for my supportive family who always believes in me. Thankful for my dear friends who keep me laughing. Thankful for the roof over my head. Thankful for my career. Thankful for all the little details that keep life interesting.

What are you thankful for? Really think about it this Thanksgiving and don't take any of it for granted ever again. 

I'll be back tomorrow with some beautiful shoes for Tuesday Shoesday...because life goes on, and because we need these little things to look forward to, and because, thankfully, there will be many weddings in my future, and many happy moments to celebrate.


  1. What a really touching post Adrienne! I can't imagine what it was like for you, and everyone affected. I am really thankful for my family and friends, those who are always there. God bless to all those still coming to terms with what happened.

  2. Wow, I'm glad you are ok. This storm was pretty scary! Lot's to be thankful for this year. I'm very thankful for all my family and friends for their support & love.
