Happy Saturday once again everyone. I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday filled with great company and great food. Matt's brother Jason and his wife Suzanne hosted Thanksgiving at their home this year, so good company and food were a given!
Because we had snow in the forecast for Thanksgiving day, I went out on Tuesday and bought a "just in case" turkey. We cooked that last night, and had a nice little day after Thanksgiving meal. I am really looking forward to using the leftover turkey to make some homemade turkey soup, turkey paprikash, and of course some pretty amazing sandwiches.
Our Day After Turkey!
Today though, in addition to deciding how to use our leftovers, we will be supporting some local and online businesses because it is Small Business Saturday! Small Business Saturday is a "movement" that was started in 2010 by American Express to encourage people to shop with small businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I have a personal connection to it because I know many small business owners and I know what it means to both the business owner and the economy when you do shop with them versus a big chain store.
I'd like to encourage you all to shop with small businesses today. If you visit the Shop Small Website, you will be able to search your local area for registered businesses that fit your particular shopping need. Enjoy your weekend everyone!
