Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I have just spent an hour rummaging through all of our media library (a virtual “memory lane”) and I am now brimming with thankfulness this morning!  And all before the Macy’s Day Parade even begins!  Hold a minute….gotta pause writing this post while I watch the parade with my hubby and munchichees.  So excited for all the dancing!  And the balloons!! Ok, back now, and time to share with all you lovely zesters, just how thankful Sam and I are this 2013 Thanksgiving.  This has been a huge year in our lives, and we want to say a BIG “THANK YOU” to all who have played a major part in it all!  You have all been key to us inching our way closer to our dreams! xoxo First and foremost!  We want to say how much we are thankful for our gorgeous husbands who have been the life-force of Zest it Up….filling in as “Mr. Mom”, bartender extraordinaire in a pinch, heavy lifters and grips to all sorts of events, sacrificers of Saturday nights and garage space, amazing household helpers and homework tutors, video techs, guinea pigs of recipes, and just flat out awesome cheerleaders!  We love you SO much! photo(9)IMG_6757-1024x1024We love having fun with you and tackling all our adventures! We are thankful for all our family…all our beautiful munchichees included: my leggy Lindley, my fierce Conall and my precocious Evangeline, and Samantha’s zesty Lucy and hefty Franklin!!  You guys rock!  We adore you and are so thankful for all the laughter, the snuggles and meaning in our lives! dsc_1640dsc_1433img_4212photo(14)photo(4)Our family has made our lives full and blessed….but so has Zest!  Thank you to everyone else who has made that possible.  A special thanks to all our beautiful interns who made our summer so memorable! p5031143OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATaylerenerle.comTaylerenerle.comphoto(11)photo(12)It was awesome laughing with you, working hard, and zesting up all sorts of events and spaces!  You guys are amazing and lovely….we cannot wait to see what you accomplish and conquer!!  You succeeded in making a very crazy wedding season fun!
