Happy Cyber Monday

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We spend our weekend with close friends and family and the food was extra deeelicious! Anyhow, don't forget tomorrow is the last day to enter my giveaway. I see many of you wanting to get kitchen cookware. It's either you really love to cook or would love to have it as a holiday gift. How fun!

Anyone finding cool Cyber Monday deals today? I'll be shopping online tonight when the little one goes to bed. Yippie! Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Change The Lights

"The presence of a noble nature, generous in its wishes, ardent in its charity, changes the lights for us: we begin to see things again in their larger, quieter masses, and to believe that we too can be seen and judged in the wholeness of our character." ~George Eliot (1819-1880)

Time to take a short break. I'll be back refreshed with new changes in a couple of weeks or so. Have a good day and see y'all later!
