How did I stay off of my computer for so long, you ask? Well of course, I could keep up with my email on my phone, so that was covered, as well as social media. But the way I stayed off for so long was merely because I was truly repulsed by the thought of it. I don't know why, and it honestly came out of nowhere, but I just wanted nothing to do with my laptop or the internet. I was too entranced by my relaxation of not having anything pressing to do, and just being able to enjoy my family, friends, and city. The food, the drinks, the conversations and laughing, all of it was just too wonderful for me to even want to think of any responsibility. It showed me how important it is to truly take some time off, even if only a day or weekend. I'll admit my ten day break was a bit too long, seeing as I was (and still very much am) swamped with school, work and getting ready for the holidays where I go back to Chicago for a month(!!!). But I'm looking forward to some more time spent relaxing and deviating from my responsibilities for a few days when the holidays roll around.
But I digress, and am realizing that this post is beyond random. But it's ok, because I have a lot of catching up to do from my hiatus.
It's December! Which is my favorite month of the year due to it being my birthday, Christmas/the holiday season, and New Year's Eve (my favorite holiday). So many wonderful, wonderful things always happen in December and this year will be no different. With all of the parties, gatherings and celebrations, there will be some great posts coming up. So many fun things to do!
Since I was MIA over the week of Thanksgiving, here are some Instagram pictures of my time at home. If you don't already, be sure to follow me on Instagram at @k_clow. Chicago is amazing this time of year, and my friend and I decided to go to the annual tree lighting in Daley Plaza, and walked around the Christkindlemart which is super cute as well. I spent Thanksgiving with my family and our good friends which was low key, but a blast nonetheless. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
Some pre-Thanksgiving week homemade green juice before heading home
My friend Megan and I at the Tree Lighting -- such fun
The beginning of a very long and fun Thanksgiving day
Beautifully set tables are my favorite
One of my favorite parts of the season!
Did you do anything special for Thanksgiving?
