Happy Sunday and Happy NOVEMBER!!! While a part of me is still trying to figure out where October disappeared to, I have to admit that I am a sucker for the holidays! Even though there is a lot to do, this is definitely my favorite time of year. In case you missed it yesterday, the LWSL Holiday Planning Guide is now available. It is a fabulous resource for keeping your schedule and budget under control, and for staying focused on what matters most. Oh, and it’s free! Be sure to grab yours here!
But now on to the good stuff. Here is what I loved this week:
