Happy HUUUUUMP Day/Thanksgiving Eve, Penny Darlings!
This week is in full on Turkey-prep! Preston and I (and our awesome neighbors) are heading to my parents’ house to enjoy a great meal with family and friends! Both of our neighbors are our age, moved from out of state, and can’t go home so my family is adopting them! I’m so excited!
Let me just end with the boring stuff so we can get to the goods! Ha! Check me out on Instagram here! I also started a Twitter account! Find that here! Follow Preston’s brand new fashion Instagram here! I also have a selling Instagram page where I sell some of my old clothes/styles so that I don’t drown in my own wardrobe. I just listed a few new things – so check that out!
Let’s get to the content of the day here friends!
Small Business Saturday!
While I may not be a ‘small business’ exactly, I definitely am a side hustler gone full-time, #GIRLBOSS, entrepreneur. I love shopping small businesses when I can (everything from soap to candles to shopping local farm stands). It’s awesome to get a high quality product, supporting makers of all types, and be able to directly communicate about my purchases!
If you’re not familiar, Small Business Saturday is the Black Friday for makers, creators, innovators, and shakers! It’s a great day to go out and support your local shops, download the Etsy app, and shop small business Saturdays!
