Happy Sunday friends and welcome back to my Mitten Moments! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was amazing and full of family, friends who are family, and an abundance of yummy food!

Thanksgiving is over, fall is almost completely behind us, and right on que, Mother Nature is hitting the Mitten with snow…for the next three days! I’m all about a white Christmas, but it’s just a tad bit early for me!

Speaking of Christmas, are you done decorating or haven’t you started?

My Personal Mitten Moments

  • It was a football week of you win some, you lose some, for our favorite Michigan teams. Our Detroit Lions lost on Thanksgiving day, so we all just ate more to feel better. However, our Michigan Wolverines beat their biggest rival, Ohio State, on Saturday! Now, that was a good day! Go Blue!
  • I finished all my Christmas shopping with the exception of one gift! Started wrapping and what I finished is under the tree. My goal is to be finished by December 1st. As organized as I feel, I’m convinced a few last minute items will make their way in!

It was a wonderful week on the blog!

I shared a little bit of my heart in my post Gratitude and Grace: Cultivate a Thankful Heart. It’s so important to appreciate the good things in our lives. It fosters a sense of contentment and inner peace, which allows us to navigate life’s storms with grace.

Do you like gift guides? I think they are always helpful, especially for those people who are hard to buy for. They can provide ideas for gifts that are both thoughtful and practical. This week, I shared 5 must-read Christmas Books and Gifts for the Avid Reader.
