Hello friends! Welcome to another fine Sunday.
I’ve been talking with friends this week and the consensus is that November has snuck up on us. We were here, just minding our own business in the month of May- we might have rested our eyes and minds for a minute or two and WHAM- November is upon us… well on its way actually. Ok. Ok ok.
What we have to look forward to these next few months: a Thanksgiving feast (however that may take shape) with friends and family, and a holiday cookie swap this December. Simple things. But these winter weekends have a way of filling themselves up with festive gatherings. I’m grateful- also truly in awe with the speed if this year.
How are you feeling this month? Starting to feel the frenzy pick up? Let’s take a moment here. The offering this week is below. As with every week, take only what you need. If it feels good to you, let me know how you feel in the comments below.
