The election is over, and it’s time to turn our focus to the upcoming holidays. I’m still working on the details of our Thanksgiving menu and am really looking forward to having both my kids home for Thanksgiving. Wishing you a heart-warming holiday season, filled with the blessings of family and friends. I hope you find something helpful in this week’s Thanksgiving resources.
See ya on the Net,
