It’s funny that the first month of my Everyday Gratitude series should start in November. Completely unintentional, I assure you. However, it is fitting since most of you will be more in the mindset of thankfulness this month.

So let’s get to it. If you’d like to join me this month in thankfulness, comment below or subscribe to my mailing list.
