    Happy day after Thanksgiving!
    Everything looks so beautiful, Jess! The flowers, the candles, the cute little turkey cookies! And I am totally stuffed right now, but I think I could swipe me a slice of that turkey! Yum!

    Blessings, friend! And I am thankful Thanksgiving calories don’t count. If they actually do, please don’t tell me! 🙂
