We had such a special Thanksgiving with our family! Kylee hosted us all at her new home in Portland. Everything was just lovely! It was good to all be together again. Empty nester life is wonderful but I sure miss everyone being together every day! I hope you enjoy these scenes from her beautiful home. I’m also sharing a few favorite small businesses, favorite deals and sales I think are worth checking out!

I shared these thoughts in our newsletter recently, but I am feeling extra thankful this week. Not just for things, but especially for the things that are not things at all. We’re savoring morning walks on the beach. Feeling so very grateful for health of our family and our precious pups who continue to bring us so much happiness. We’re excited about the upcoming wedding for our daughter Courtney, our son Luke’s new job, our other daughter Kylee’s new home. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the gift of a business that provides for our needs and allows our family to work together. We are grateful for the fun we have getting creative with our home and in our work! It’s a joy to get to know so many wonderful people who follow along with our home and adventures. Thank you for being here and being a part of our lives.
If you’re getting some holiday shopping done this weekend like I am, here are a few of my favorite small businesses as well as deals on some of my favorite things!
We are so grateful for you and your support of our small business this year, it means the world to us.
Some great sales this weekend:
Amazon – Did you see the adorable bunny candleholder and fox candleholders I got? I also just got this great trunk storage basket and I’m going to buy another today since it’s 15% off now!. You can shop all Amazon deals here.
Verb Bars – I have been buying these bars for several months now and I highly recommend them, especially if you are looking for gluten-free/dairy-free/vegan snacks. They have as much caffeine as a shot of espresso but it’s from green tea, and it doesn’t make me feel jittery at all. They are a great pick-me-up. Best of all, they are delicious! You can buy them with my link HERE on sale right now. (Buy 2 pouches for $28 which is 30% off), Buy 3 pouches for $39 which is 35% off, Buy 4 pouches for $48 which is 40% off).
