Greetings, my dears! I’ve been in the editing lair with my head down, second jammies on (yoga pants, hoodie, Uggs), and faithful pups at my feet. My apologies for not being in touch. Links are tardy today, but I hope you find something fun.
(If you’re in the States, how are your Thanksgiving plans coming? We’re having 15 at our house. Smoked turkey breasts arrived yesterday, but I’m (grocery store) hunting for a fresh one today.)
