Now that thanks has been given and the fridge is stocked with yesterday's abundant leftovers, it's time to turn the page to the blessed season of Advent which this year begins on Sunday, December 2.
Might I suggest that this year you consider making your own or purchasing homemade, hand-crafted gifts this year? Pinterest is a great resource chock full of easy, simple ideas for creating homemade gifts. If crafting isn't your thing, please visit and support the local artisans in your area by shopping the multitude of holiday bazaars and craft fairs being held during the coming weeks. This year is our third participating in my alma mater's annual holiday bazaar -- if you're local, stop by and say hello!
I wouldn't be here until Monday, here I am none the less. Hope your day-after-Thanksgiving is a relaxing one,
Thanks for visiting Happy in Dole Valley! To join us on our journey, look to the upper right to follow or subscribe. :)
