Happy Thanksgiving, where we here in the U.S. begin a glut of holiday shopping with a glut at the table. Holy cow, I love this place and the exuberance we meet everything with. There’s truly a lot to be thankful for this year as I’ve been reminded of what’s important and the fragility of it all if you sit and do nothing. I’ve seen a lot of quiet heros lately, and my hat is off to you. Now pass me some of that green bean casserole, please!
I will not be going out early Friday, but I might venture downtown to shop locally because we’ve got a lot of cool stores–maybe stop in for a sweet coffee before walking home. I truly enjoy living this close to the shops, and I am always amazed at what I find at my local hardware store. (Seriously!) If the mall overwhelms, give your local merchants a try and count the smiles. Like me, they do what they do because they are pursuing a dream, and it shows.
