A Thankful Start + Oikos Winner!

And it’s Monday again.

Did you have a good weekend? I had a great weekend!

Lots of football and good food and spending time with friends and cooking and baking and some fun new recipes I have to share this week.


I’m not sure why, but I’m not sad that today is Monday – the weekend was great, this week should be interesting (I have jury duty for the first time ever), and I’m ready to get closer to Thanksgiving.

So today, I’m thankful for a new Monday. A new week. My family and friends. For you, for reading!

And I want to know – what are YOU thankful for today? It’s never too early to have that Thanksgiving spirit.


Also…I know you want to know…
