Weekend Reading: November 26, 2011

our family pictures from Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving has always been one of my very favorite holidays (it could be the food, but I think it’s more than that!), and this year was no exception! We had a great Thanksgiving dinner followed by family pictures in the backyard, which seems to be a new annual tradition!

Today, we’re heading to brunch with some good friends that we don’t get to see nearly enough. Then we’ll be back to help my mom bake cookies and decorate her tree. The holidays are officially in swing!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
