Happy Monday, glitter girls!

It was a busy busy weekend for these glitter girls. Holiday parties GALORE, birthday party, shopping…’tis the season!

J: This weekend was Jay’s nieces 3rd birthday party (her actual birthday is Friday). This came complete with farm animals and tons of gifts. She’s such a sweet princess and loved every minute. On Sunday, I accompanied my friend Kati to her holiday party at the W Downtown Atlanta. Love spending time with an old college friend!

L: Joe and I were lucky to have a few party invites Friday night–it was nice to spend time with so many good friends. On Saturday morning, we had brunch at a restaurant Joe has been dying to try, Tortuga’s Grille, in Thunderbolt near Savannah. Best shrimp fritters ever, y’all.

we sat outside, in the parking lot. it was worth it.
Shrimp Fritters
it took us two seconds to eat these delicious shrimp fritters.

We’d be lying if we said that this holiday season feels super duper festive right now. Friday’s school shooting as well as things that have affected each of us personally have taken some of the glitter out of this time of year. If you’re struggling to get into the holiday spirit, it’s okay to regret that party invite and stay in. For some of us, going through the motions is important–it makes us feel normal. Others need more quiet time. So however you choose to deal with everything, remember that there  is MUCH to celebrate!
