Daily Photos: November Edition

November looked like my oldest sister's 40th and a long weekend celebrating her at my house. I loved having my sisters and mom visit. When we bought the house I couldn't wait to share our space wth our families. It was a great way to start off the month.  November brings Thanksgiving, and we decorated our first Christmas tree. It was a travel-free month, giving life  a quieter rhythm. Ty got a nasty cold. Temperatures dropped a bit. We continued to be outdoors a lot. As the holiday season started, I found myself journaling more, anticipating December and trying to process through our first year in Connecticut. Here's November, day by day.
