Wow! Is it really Thanksgiving already? Is it just me or does it feel like just the other day we were salivating and pondering over these gapmuse Thanksgiving recipes. I honestly feel like I just published this post! Be sure to check it out. You might find great unconventional ideas for your Thanksgiving dinner.
Truth be told, I’m not quite ready or feel like thinking about the holidays! Maybe I’m resisting our consumerist culture, which every year seems to be forcing us to start thinking about it earlier and earlier. Seriously, this year, some retailers took it to another level and had stuff out even before Halloween (sigh!) Alternatively, it could be because I just went through a really costly transitional period and don’t want to spend any money for a while. Whatever the reason, all I know is that I could use a month or two more before I have to think about it.
Even though I don’t like the pressure (warranted or not) that comes with the holiday season, I do like the idea of been thankful not just during Thanksgiving, but whenever possible.
Here are the 5 things gapmuse is thankful for this Thanksgiving and beyond!
1. We Turned 1!
