Happy Thanksgiving!

Those of us in the U.S. have one of my favorite holidays this week — Thanksgiving! I love the focus on gathering with those we love, the lack of pressure to make it epic (at least for the kids), and of course, the best part… the food! I could eat Thanksgiving food once a week, if it weren’t so time-consuming to prepare.

We’re taking the week off to quiet the blog and podcast, so instead of new stuff, we’re sharing with you some of our holiday favorites from the archives, below. Enjoy them while sipping a favorite something… snuggled under a blanket by a fire, optional.

My Simple Advent Guide is available now, but I’ll remind you again this Friday — perhaps you can use it to prep for another one of my favorite seasons, as an alternative to fighting the crowds in stores?

Then, next Monday, be looking for it: our annual Holiday Gift Guide! We’ve got some great ideas for you, from ethically-made items you can find in more conventional online stores to fantastic cottage industries we love.

Have a great holiday week, and as always, thank you for reading and listening. I’m so thankful for you!

xo, Tsh

And one last thing:

In the midst of the holidays, savor the non-holidayness too.

    I love Advent. We’ve been using a wreath my daughter and I made when she was little at a church event. It is a bit worse for the wear, but it has so many memories that I still use it:) I also always read an Advent devotional. A missionary I support usually sends one each year, so it is sort of like my first Christmas present of the season!
