Hi guys! I hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving! We’ve all been reflecting on what we’re thankful for. My gratitude abounds in many directions. Above all, I am grateful for my family. We are happy and healthy, which means we have everything we need.
I’m also grateful to each and every one of my readers for your loyalty. You come back day after day to visit for a while and to see what’s happening on Connecticut in Style. It’s a labor of love to create new content and I’m constantly hustling to bring ideas and inspiration for stylish living. If you are new to this blog, this thankful welcome mat is for you. It’s been an amazing year from my little blog and I’m so thankful for everyone’s support!
Grab your credit card because I’m switching gears. Now I’m thankful for SALES! In case you haven’t heard (ha!) it’s Black Friday. I hope that you are in the mood for shopping. I’ve linked to about 100 stores with their Black Friday deals and codes. If you want to cut to the chase, I’ve included links to my hand-picked gift guides. Check out my first two Holiday Gift Guides: 2017 Holiday Hostess Gift Guide and Top Gifts for Her. I’ve also partnered with Peace. Love. Light. and I’m featuring their modern and elegant Hanukkah Gifts for the home. Hanukkah starts on December 12th, so now is the time to shop. Next week, I’ll have a couple more gift guides. If you have kiddos, you will not want to miss this!
