Thanksgiving Fun

First of all, happy Thanksgiving week! I love the holidays and I am so excited that it is finally cold in Los Angeles that I have been wearing a scarf and coat every day (even though the temperatures are ranging from 75-80 most days) and I hope you are doing the same if you live …
