And the holiday season begins! November 2017 is big in our house with Thanksgiving and a special person’s birthday happening within days of each other. Don’t even get me started on shopping for the holidays. Usually I am months ahead of the game, but this year I’m slipping a little.
When do you start holiday shopping?
Daylight Savings ends this month, so don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour. If you’re feeling frisky, set them back at 6pm so 5 o’clock happy hour can begin again. ;)
