Starting the day after Thanksgiving, the holiday music begins and all the giddy childhood images of stockings, trees, candy canes, tinsel and ornaments begin calling my name. Maybe it’s a bit tacky to some, maybe even a bit childish, but I love it.
As we get things ready for our Ugly Sweater Party in the LOFT this week, I can’t help but to daydream. Enjoy!

We started a tradition, nearly 10 years ago, saying Thank You to our parents and grandparents. The day after Thanksgiving, we take a moment to breathe. It’s just a little of something to show them how much they mean to us. No football games, no rushing around to other houses, no kid’s table, just us and them enjoying a beautiful meal and great conversation.
This year, we invited them to our Loft gallery for an amazing Paleo approved meal I prepared (for some of the new dietary commitments). A slow cooked roast, homemade crancherry sauce, organic green beans and cashews, bacon wrapped dates (filled with almonds), persimmon salad, baked apples for dessert and more.
Below are some pictures from the dinner.

Around this time of year, we get pretty used to seeing the color orange. Orange has seemingly become synonymous with autumn, usually being coupled with browns, golden yellows and hints of mahogany. Today’s table is inspired by the season, but given a fresh perspective that is bright and modern.
