Goodbye fantastic and delicious Thanksgiving meal, all made by my parents (best stuffing ever, mom).
Goodbye turkey-induced, tryptophanic, serotonin-released 2-hour nap after Thanksgiving dinner - yawn!
Goodbye The Muppets movie with school friends filling the entire theater!
Goodbye unusually warm weather before temps drop and the ground is covered in white (we'll get in a few hikes).
Hello Christmas decoration boxes scattered all over the house just waiting to be opened.
Hello declaring most of the next days Pajama Days with lots of snuggle sessions.
Hello hot chocolate breaks from decking our halls.
Hello Thanksgiving leftovers for lunch and gladly finishing off the leftover pie.
Hello gathered Sweet Gum Tree "spikies" - I have big craft plans for you I can't wait to share.
This week I learned realization from contemplation is a powerful gift to which I am thankful. I'm grateful for the following self-discoveries:
1) All I have really is all I need.
2) Health is the most important wealth.
3) Love is the origin for everything. When that isn't the case, do what it takes to make it so.

So, are you a Black Friday shopper or not?
