Holiday Friendly Swimwear

Going to the beach after the Holidays can be really daunting, putting on a bathing suit after eating a big Christmas dinner is pretty much the last thing I want to do. That is until I discovered this little beauty by Norma Kamali.normakamaliblack

About which Revolve Clothing says:

“The first designer to receive a plaque on New York’s 7th Avenue, she is credited with inventing the sleeping bag coat, the silk parachute look, high heeled sneakers, and the popular packable, multi-use poly jersey. Let Norma Kamali show you the way.”normakamalired

I don’t really know about that, but I do know that this bather is cute, comfortable, and sucks you in like spanx.normakamaliwhite

Pass the stuffing please!

This Year I am Thankful For…

This year has brought unbelievable blessings into my life. My heart overflows with gratitude and I am often in disbelief over all of the amazing things that have happened to me this past year.

I am thankful for our new friends and life in Chicago, for everyone welcoming us and helping us create a home here. I am thankful for all of our old friends for supporting us on our new adventure, and for those bonds growing deeper despite the distance.

I am thankful for this blog and all of my wonderful readers, I could never have known when I started this blog a few years ago how much it would bring into my life, and I have all of you to thank for that.

I am thankful for my adorable fuzzy puppies who light up my life.


I am thankful for my growing family, and for no longer being an only child.

Most of all, I am thankful for this man.


For asking me to be his wife. I could not be more honored, and more excited to share my life with him.

Where does Pumpkin Pie come from?


Happy Thanksgiving

What am I thankful for?

Among many things…

Boy sees lobster for the first time

What are you thankful for?

Normally we do Wedding Wednesdays over here at Peppermint Bliss, and we will be back with a serious bang next week, but I thought instead we should take advantage of this wonderful Holiday to further bond as blogger and reader. Do you know how much I like to hear from you? Reading your comments is one of my favorite parts of this blog!

In light of the occasion, I want to know: What are you Thankful for this year?

And for those of you still in the need of some Thanksgiving Entertaining Inspiration…
