Gobble, Gobble - I've got the SECRET to making your Thanksgiving meal ROCK
No stove, oven, or cookbook required.
🦃HAPPY THANKSGIVING! 🦃
And to my readers around the world🌏, Happy Thursday!
Whether you’re sitting down for a feast, traveling, or just going about your day…I think today’s newsletter can help you in some way or another.
But, if you are celebrating Thanksgiving, I do believe I’ve figured out the secret to making Thanksgiving dinner (or anything you’re whipping up) absolutely amazing.
For those who know me… yes, this secret is coming from“I’ll bring the salad or wine” Abbey. But don’t worry, my big secret doesn’t involve cooking. (Insert audible sigh of relief.)
And that secret happens to be (you guessed it)… What I’d Rather Be Talking About this week:
With that perspective… I’ll get this newsletter kicked off with a clip from my favorite Thanksgiving movie.
Read ⬇️ for some great holiday deals, a new feature, and a SALE of my own!
BFFs Clare & Erica of a thing or two are (hands-down) #1 for gift guides and just pure entertainment value. Two episodes to gobble up: gifts for boyfriends/husbands/kids/and pickleball parents or gifts for employees/dads/brothers-in-law/and “snobby-for-no-reason” sisters-in-law. These two episodes feature listener dilemmas - what to buy for the tough people in their lives. The entries and Clare & Erica’s responses are perfection.
If you want the Thanksgiving dinner vibe to last long after Aunt Edna has gone home, play this relaxing Thanksgiving ambiance video. And who knew there are actually Thanksgiving songs… check out this playlist.
First, a preview of a special feature, People I’d Rather Be Talking About, where I’ll introduce you to amazing people who are following their dreams - in business, life, or hobbies. In tomorrow’s bonus issue, you’ll meet Sarah… a mom, wife, and entrepreneur who is rocking it with her beautiful natural skincare business. From the packaging to the products to the beautiful soul behind Grace Bath & Beauty Co… you’re going to want to tune in tomorrow for Sarah’s story.
