I am feeling so content right now. I celebrated an early Thanks Giving at Bespoke Bride HQ with Jess, Em, and Megan. I had SUCH a lovely evening. Megan and I headed over to the Forest of Dean on Saturday afternoon (enjoying a Disney and christmas sing along in the car) filled with excitement and suspense, not knowing what the girls had up their sleeve. The girls had hinted at a few little surprises, and told us to bring our cameras (goes with out saying really with a room full of bloggers!) but we had no idea what they were up to.
We arrived to be greeted by the smell of turkey cooking in the oven and a Thanks Giving table so amazingly decorated in pastel shades and Bespoke Bride colours. They had made garlands to replace the usual christmas party hat, pyramid favour boxes filled with little sweets, each personalised with a photo of each of us. They had created a geometric backdrop for the perfect photo opp, filled huge balloons with helium and customised them with “Give Thanks” lettering. It looked amazing, my excitement grew and at one point I just couldn’t contain it I was skipping around the house with a huge smile on my face.
We had all preplanned our secret santa gifts (not that it stayed secret for long) so whilst we waited for the turkey to cook through, we sat to open all our presents. We took it in turn to open our pressies, to be sure we all got to see what every one had be given. I love watching people open presents more than I do opening my own so I went last and it’s obvious we all know each other well with each present being so perfectly fitting for each of us.
Jess Santa got me a little mermaid print in a personalised frame and I can’t wait for it to be the first piece of art on my office wall. I love it.
We all helped with prepping the veg and serving the dinner. In true blogger style, our dinner was almost cold by the time we ate it after, naturally, taking photos and videos of the food before it reached the table. It was all so delicious and yummy, and SO filling. After dinner we all got in our onesies, opened the tin of quality street, ate homemade apple pie and drank orange liquor hot chocolate, it was very indulgent. We talked the night away, about blogging, the future, our past, we put the world to rights and had a proper girly cosy evening. It is so nice to have found a group of like minded and genuine girls who I can enjoy evening like this with, I honestly can’t put in to words how happy and content I came away feeling.
