In fact, I rather enjoy how beautiful a white snowfall looks when it blankets the landscape + there’s something truly special about celebrating all the winter holidays. BUT if I’m
It’s officially the start of Thanksgiving week, and I have to admit- the older I get, the more I appreciate the simplicity of this November holiday. There’s no big tree to hunt down and decorate.
