Thanksgiving 2017

I’ve deemed my family, Keeping Up with the Wernecke’s.

There’s no doubt we should be signed/filmed and paid millions by E! or Bravo. I’ll have to share my “birth story” on here sometime. Trust me you can’t make this stuff up but I wouldn’t change the craziness and chaos for anything!

We all gathered at my parents house in Columbus, Ohio to eat and drink our way through turkey day. I am always so thankful for this crazy bunch I get to call mine but this year I am especially thankful for this space, and all of the incredible adventures its taken me on.

Gang’s all here!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. I am back to the gym this week and it has been rough. I did entirely too much eating and drinking over the long weekend and am now paying the price. A month until Christmas and I can assure you it is going to be filled with time at the gym and lots of vegetables, just so I can do it all again when we travel to Blue Ridge, Georgia for Christmas.
