Happy Monday-after-Thanksgiving! Can you believe that we’re already on the other side of the holiday?

12 Thanksgiving Cakes To Make You EXTRA Thankful
John and I actually had our Thanksgiving dinner with family on Monday, and we had ham instead of turkey, but it was still totally Thanksgiving dinner because we used cloth napkins and the phrases “What’s that supposed to mean?” and “No, YOU’RE wrong!” were used. YAY HOLIDAYS. If that doesn’t alre [...]
