When I walked into a store two weeks ago to pick up craft supplies for my Halloween costume, I couldn’t believe what I heard. It was October 26th and Christmas music was already playing on rotation, holiday decorations were stocked and ready. I couldn’t help but say how it was way too early for stores to be transitioned to the holidays. Now it’s the second week in November and I feel like the time is flying. It’s time to transition to the most wonderful time of the year where you find time to pause and give thanks for everyone and everything in your life. As Thanksgiving approaches and the excitement of holiday shopping sales, numerous holiday parties and delicious holiday food fills your mind remember one thing…it will be over before you know it. Cherish the time, the memories and the awesome holiday shopping deals.
