Juliana and I have been scouting Pinterest for craft ideas to do as a family the day after Thanksgiving. We went to Michael’s today to gather materials. I can’t wait for us all to be together and to see what everyone chooses to make.

Happy Thanksgiving Week. Keep calm and create happiness.

Namaste.
