I am thankful for is my mom, Connie Leinen!
I have always been thankful for my mom. She has always put my needs in-front of her own needs! But this year I want to give her a special THANK YOU because she was such a huge blessing in helping my fiancé and myself plan our wedding this past August. I am thankful for my mom because of all the time she put into our very special day, the day a girl dreams about for her whole life! She knew how important it was for me. She was not controlling, but supportive in every way. Without my mom’s touches, our wedding day would not have been as lovely. My beautiful mother made over 300 tissue paper flower puffs. It took her months to do. See below:
She also was a moral support and kept me calm when I called her freaking out about my wedding plans. She brought my wedding dress from Des Moines to Sioux City. She lost a bunch of weight, go mom! She brought her collection of cake stands (about 20) and some plates for my cupcakes (again from Des Moines to Sioux city) See below:
The list of things my mother did for me goes on and on. I am so thankful for her not only my whole life, but especially this year with her helping, supportive hand with our wedding. My mother's love, support, honesty, and encouragement has helped shape me into who I am today. My hope one day is to grow up and be as beautiful as my mom, inside and out!
This year, one thing I am thankful for is technology. See below:
I can talk to people like Annie all the way in Japan :) and now my family in Des Moines and soon to be family in San Antonio, Texas! Thanks Skype for keeping us connected in a visual and easy way!
I just started my blog like a month ago. I am thankful for this because I enjoy getting to share my creative thoughts, ideas, and life with all of you who I love!
My mac book, which helps me perform all of the tasks above!

ABOVE: Cute modcloth tights, click here for tights link.
ABOVE: Loving this J.crew look. Dark grey tights, a staple in any wardrobe!
ABOVE: Great inspiration: link.
ABOVE: Adorable outfit and beautifully patterned tights. My favorite! click here.
ABOVE: If you live in the midwest, or are afraid and not so daring to wear crazy colors of tights. I have a solution, simply get a black tight with a little fun texture, like this dotted pair found here.
Hope this inspired you so, I know it did me :) God bless!
