Giving Thanks: A Quick List - Pish to Posh

Giving Thanks: A Quick List

So… I struggled with this post NOT because I am not thankful or that I do not have so many things to be thankful for but because I am not sure simple words can express just how thankful I am this year.

In a Nutshell:

I am ever thankful for Brendan.  Declan is the most precious gift I could have and everyday I am thankful I get to raise this little human  My parents- duh! My in-laws (parents and sisters).  My family in Colorado. My friends.  Living in London.  Getting to write a blog and share my life with you.

shop the look: denim // top // jacket // booties // bag // sunglasses


The lighter side of this post is obviously this adorable outfit… I am also very thankful for comfy, cute clothes! New amazing denim alert… another great find from H & M!  The distressed and patched nature of these add just enough flare but keep them pretty neutral.  I am thankful for J.Crew.  And even more for this tuxedo inspired top. You needed this in your closet yesterday but now you can get it here and use code ‘FESTIVE’ at checkout.  Alright friends, it is winter in London and therefore I have not left the house without this essential faux fur hooded jacket in days.  Seriously, it is not only adorable but it is warm. I have linked several others <here> and <here> so you have options. As the holidays are sneaking up (see my perfect holiday dress here) I can not recommend this tote enough… it is perfect for everyday and it literally accompanies me almost everywhere.  Booties are a season old but I have included several of my other favorites <here> and <here>.

As I reflect on what I am truly the most thankful for I am left with a list of people.  There are so many people who continuously inspire me, who continue to push me, who love me, who support me, who make me tear up with laughter and who make me forever thankful.  The reality is that I am so incredibly lucky to live the life I do.  To spend my days exploring London, writing and styling Pish to Posh, traveling with my family and connecting with people is truly a gift I cherish everyday.

The List:

My husband- without hesitation- is the most influential person in my life and I am absolutely indebted to his love.  Thank you  Brendan.

My son has thrived in London.  He has developed a British accent and I quickly went from “mama” to “mummy” and I could not be more thankful.  He loves his life here,  he is happy, he is inquisitive, he is curious and he is funny.  Thank you Declan.

The two who gave me life are simply unbelievable.  The endless support- all the way from Denver- the endless love and the endless humor they provide in my life is un-matchable.  Thank you Mom and Daddy.

Marriage is about the joining of two families… I am lucky to have the most amazing family gifted to me through marriage.  They are honest, opinionated, trustworthy, loving and humorous.  Thank you Maxwell’s.

Not only do I have great in-laws but I also have the best family in Denver.  They keep me grounded, they love my dog, they help me with all things computer and they simply adore my son.  Thank you Fry’s.

A friendship that withstood college, children and a move across the world is almost unheard of but I am lucky enough to have it.  Thank you April.

one click shopping:


There is certainly no way to express or to include every single person who I am thankful for- that would be the longest post ever as I truly have so many to thank.

This Thanksgiving I hope you find yourself surrounded by people who inspire you, support you, love you and make you happy.  This year Thanksgiving will be a small affair with one great friend joining us (British do not celebrate… I mean…..).  We will raise a glass in cheers for all that we are thankful for….

Thank you for stopping by and reading… thank you for indulging me in my endeavor! Forever grateful.

With Love and Thanks,
