Happy Black Friday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Even if it wasn’t a big one with lots of people, I hope you were able to indulge in some yummy foods. Finn made our turkey and it was delicious (and we have boatloads of leftovers)!
Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to dive headfirst into the holiday season. Thanks for all of your excitement about the gift guide on Monday. It was a fun one to put together. I hope it comes in handy as you tackle your own holiday shopping (in fact, some of the items are even on sale today! More details at the bottom of the post.
