We had such a special Thanksgiving with our family! Kylee put us all in his new home in Portland. Everything was just adorable! It was good to be together. Life in empty nests is wonderful, but I really miss the fact that everyone is together every day! Hope you enjoy these scenes from her beautiful home. I’m also sharing a few favorite small businesses, favorite deals and sales that I think are worth checking out!

I shared these thoughts in our newsletter recently, but I feel very grateful this week. Not just for things, but especially for things that are not things at all. We savor the morning walks on the beach. I am so grateful for the health of our family and our precious puppies who continue to bring us so much happiness. We are excited about our daughter Courtney’s upcoming wedding, our son Luke’s new job, our other daughter Kylee’s new home. We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the donation of a business that supports us and allows our family to work together. We are grateful for the fun we have in getting creative with our home and in our work! It is a joy to meet so many wonderful people who follow our house and our adventures. Thank you for being here and being a part of our lives.
