Well this week I had my fill of Thanksgiving flavors. We hosted a teen Friendsgiving on Tuesday, a classic Thanksgiving on Thursday, and attended a casual outdoor fried Turkey Thanksgiving yesterday where I discovered some new recipes I’ll be recreating soon. My belly was full many times and I felt so thankful for the health and harmony that exists in my life. This morning I went on a run around my neighborhood under blue skies and bright yellow leaves and felt so very blessed.
This week I’m just finishing up a few more decorations around the house for Christmas and I’ll be releasing new calendars for 2022 later in the week, I think you’ll love those!
