Take Time to Give Thanks

The fact that most retailers had their holiday decorations up at Halloween really set the holidays off to a bad start for me.

It seems the older I get, the more time seems to fly. I am a savorer (if that is a word?) I want to savor each holiday, each season, I don’t like to be rushed.

I don’t know about you, but the fact that this country has seemed to skip right past thanksgiving worries me. I mean if we are going to be out buzzing around like bees buying gifts, shouldn’t we take time to give thanks first?

It’s weird being on the retailer side because of course it’s in our blood to sell sell sell, only x amount of days until Christmas! But for me, I want to slow it down. I don’t want to hurry about buy buy buying. I want to take time, carefully select thoughtful gifts for my friends and family. (After of course eating gluttonous amounts of food on Thanksgiving). Don’t get me wrong, I love a great black Friday sale BUT there is a time and a place AFTER Thanksgiving.

Yes, there will be a black friday sale on this site but it will not be starting until 10am the Friday following Thanksgiving. My wish for you is to enjoy your time with friends and family. Savor each holiday, THEN dive into massive amounts of crowds digging for deals :)

Happy Sunday Lovelies!
