Thanksgiving Table Inspo

It was a beautiful day today, one of those perfect Texas days that make you wonder if you woke up in California instead: high of 74, low of 57 with a blue sky and a light breeze. I imagine I’m not the only person who’s been unbelievably stressed lately so I decided to pretend that…
