Seriously, do you believe tomorrow is actually Thanksgiving day? It seems like only yesterday I was lounging by my pool and enjoying a frosty beverage and tomorrow, I will be watching the Macy's Parade, sprucing myself up and heading to my sister's in NJ for turkey and all the trimmings (can't wait for my mom's stuffing). I hope you thoroughly enjoy your holiday (let me know what you're doing!). Enjoy this edition, too, and send your feedback directly to: email@example.com.
