Thanksgiving Snapshots

Weekend Notes

Morning y’all. We were out semi-late (okay, it was only 10:30, but that’s late for us these days!)  at a friend’s birthday potluck where I might have had just a little too much wine…and let’s just say that the only word going through my head right now is coffee. Looking forward to a crisp, fall weekend full of […]
