Happy Sunday! Are you still recovering from all the delicious Thanksgiving food? I hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend with family and friends. I’m so thankful you stopped by today.
If you are not celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you had a fabulous weekend, and I appreciate you for visiting with me today, also.
The last glimpse of warm weather. Although we had freezing temperatures for several nights last week, I spotted this lone bloom standing proudly in the garden.
Today is a look back at this past week on the blog, plus all of our Thanksgiving weekend adventures. A little shopping, some behind the scenes, and some great inspiration from around the web.

Thanksgiving Weekend at Kure Beach
We enjoyed a wonderful meal at the home of our dear friends and beach neighbors. We were blessed to be invited to join their family to celebrate all we are thankful for.
We also enjoyed an oyster roast and a warm fire with friends on Friday evening.
Shopping In Wilmington
Black Friday was spent exploring fun shops in Wilmington and getting into the holiday shopping spirit.
We had a fun girl’s day out with lots of shopping, lunch, and laughter. Here are a few highlights of our trip.
Look at this beautiful wreath and mantel at Spruced.
So many beautiful items were found. This coastal holiday table is stunning at Paysage Home.
I really wish I had this deer for my front porch.
Another favorite shop is High Tide Home Provisions, with lots of coastal-inspired decor.
If found a sweet driftwood angel for the beach cottage.
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
