Don’t forget to fill out my short reader survey for a chance to win a $50 Gift Card.

This week is bittersweet for our family. It marks the first time in several years that we will not be spending Thanksgiving with our dear friends in West Virginia. But, it will be the first Thanksgiving in many years that we will be spending with our families! One thing I love about Thanksgiving, no matter where we spend it, is that everyone participates in the cooking which makes less work for everyone!
