Fun Thanksgiving Ideas

November 5, 2020 Newsletter

I’m all about staying positive and showing gratitude, but let’s be honest. This year has been a dumpster fire. There’s nothing wrong with calling it the way it is.

With the holidays approaching, it’s easy to stress yourself out trying to make everything perfect. Guess what? Perfect shouldn’t be on your “to-do” list this year.

This year let’s give ourselves a pass. No one needs to make the perfect meal, in a perfectly decorated house. Let’s just take a deep breath, put our phone down, and be thankful this year is almost over.

This week I pulled together some fun ideas for Thanksgiving food, crafts, and decorating. I hope you enjoy them.
