THE POST-THANKSGIVING RELAX-TIVITY GUIDE





In the spirit of being thankful for what we already have... we dug up some old stuff for a peaceful weekend at home. Whether your ambitions over the next few days include reading, cooking, or just playing some tunes, we thought we’d share some old favorites. Maybe you'll enjoy! (Or maybe you'd rather just shop. That's okay, too.)

Love the one(s) you’re with, be thankful for what you got, enjoy yourself — and pass it on.
