Happy Cyber weekend…and happy Weekend Reading! I hope you had a fabulous time with family + friends over Thanksgiving…and if you didn’t, that’s okay, too. The holidays can be hard as much as they can be happy, so if this time of year isn’t especially your favorite for whatever reason – sending you a hug and just a reminder that it’s okay to give yourself grace + space for whatever you need for YOU this season, too. 🙂 OK OK on another note – have you started (or finished) shopping this weekend yet??? Don’t miss this master list of the BEST of Black Friday/Cyber Week sales happening all weekend long – we’re updating it daily with new discount codes and steals and sales as they hit websites! ALSO if you’ve had anything from the THRIVING Collection on your wishlist – it’s all now 15% off, no code needed! ALSO ALSO highly recommend perusing Walmart’s Deals for Days page – soooo many deals updated daily there.

AND FINALLY ALSO today is Small Business Saturday – so if you’re shopping small (which I highly recommend doing)Small Shop Gift Guide, the CUR can be your go-to for some great giftable items you’ll lovelovelove. 🙂
