Pumpkin Cream Pie

Happy Thanksgiving! I sincerely hope your day is filled with pie, laughter, and lots of love.

I couldn’t let this day of giving thanks go by without penning a quick THANK YOU to all of you dear readers and blogging companions. I am constantly overwhelmed by the blessings this life of blogging brings to me on a daily basis.

I am so grateful for this opportunity to do something I love so much and help provide for our little family at the same time. And that is 100% thanks to YOU.

This is the easiest pie crust ever! No rolling, just press the dough into the pie pan.

I also want to send out bear hugs and a big thank you to the community of bloggers I’m privileged to rub virtual shoulders with on a daily basis.

With everything that goes along with having a baby, I decided to take a bit of a step back from the social aspect in the blogging world this year. I haven’t done any traveling or attended conferences. I haven’t participated in any big collaborative giveaways or projects with other bloggers. And I haven’t been very good at commenting on other posts. All things that help you stay relevant with other bloggers. I expected to just fade away and be forgotten, but instead I’ve been overwhelmed by the love and consideration of so many other bloggers reaching out to me. Notes that say, “Hey, we’re thinking about you!”, online gift cards to buy a pizza so I don’t have to make dinner, and so many other little acts of kindness that have not gone unnoticed.

As a little thanks (and for those of you needing some Black Friday-Turned-Thursday shopping fuel), I hope you’ll enjoy a Starbucks treat on me! I’m not sharing this on Instagram or Facebook, so this is just for you readers who take the time to visit Something Swanky every day and for my email subscribers. THANK YOU!
