while you are busy making holiday plans (thanksgiving is only 3 weeks from today) don't forget to grab your pack of harvest postcard prints! today marta is hosting a pre-holiday event at the shop. be sure to pop over if you're hoping to get your hands on one. this will be the final re-stock of the year, so don't miss out!! 

here's a peek at the prints you can purchase. simply turn over, jot "please come put your feet under my table", add a stamp, and voila... a super easy handwritten thanksgiving invite.

meanwhile, i've been planning what i will do this month.

I had to laugh at the lotion comment because I have been trying to do the same thing...especially now that it's getting so dry. I also want to start making pizzas myself...oh how I love November. The big thing is to celebrate my 34th on Monday...whoo hoo!!!

In November I want to:
~savor the last crisp autumn days
~make a fabulously delicious Thanksgiving dinner
~get to know the new neighbors better
~make Christmas presents
~build fires in the wood stove everyday
~make apple crisp again
~and on and on, but I don't want to bore you. : )

Sounds like you have a lovely November planned.

p.s. And speaking of social networking, I've been toying with the idea of friend requesting you on FB, but you have, like, a million friends, and I don't know if you want another who you've never even met, so I chicken out every time I look you up.

These are so lovely, and your list is fantastic.

In November I will

Wish with all my might for snow
Watch the Snoopy Thanksgiving spcial
Make at least one pumpkin pie
Tell my friends that I am thankful for them

Anna said...

Those are great goals. I am saving mine for December because that is when I will be on break from school and I will actually have some time.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
