 Happy Thanksgiving Week!  Can you believe we only have 29 days left until Christmas?  Every single year I say to myself, self, start getting ready for Christmas in September or October so that you aren’t overwhelmed, and every year I am totally caught off guard by Christmas and am NO WHERE NEAR ready even on Christmas Eve.  I guess it’s just the way I roll….backwards and off the track!  

My family and I just got back from being away for a few days ~it was the first trip we had made in almost 5 years….it was so nice to be away.  It was the first time my youngest stayed in a hotel and he thought it was the coolest thing!  We stayed at the Sheraton in downtown Columbus, Ohio {we were there for a bit of business} and it is the cutest small city…friendly, clean and a very nice place to visit.  The Sheraton, by the way, was awesome and the parking valets were probably the nicest guys I’ve met in a long time.

    It makes me feel just a tiny bit better that I am not the only who is perpetually running behind when it comes to the holidays! Maybe we should do a little every month, starting in January! Glad your family was able to get away for a bit! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. -K

    I would carry it with me to bible study and any place where I think I need to carry my other necessities.

    There could be numerous ways to use the bag. To decorate, hang on a door knob with treats or decorations. To carry as a purse when on a short trip to store or PO. I’m sure I could think of more with time as they are adorable.
