If Ever There Were A Month To Be Thankful

Sure, we do these public expressions of gratitude to our sponsors every month, but you gotta admit that November’s probably the most perfect time to be thankful for the folks who make our other 30+ posts possible (note: we usually share these monthly posts on a Friday, but we have a pretty crazy update to share tomorrow, so this guy gets to live here on Thursday afternoon instead). So we’ve highlighted things that caught our eye and reminded us of the season (they haven’t been gifted to us – here’s our no-swag policy) along with sharing a few sneak peeks for future posts at the bottom just for fun. Oh and be sure to catch the special discounts rounded up at the end for you too. Happy (almost) Thanksgiving, guys!

    Such suspense for the crazy update! Who needs scary movies to get that type of excitement, YHL keeps us on our toes all the time!

    Looking forward to the posts to come – especially the moose! I hope you all are having safe travels. I can only imagine how much your are missing your Bean. The first time I was away from my son (he’s Clara’s age) for any significant length of time was while I was in labor with my daughter. You would think the whole being in labor part would have been enough of a distraction, but no, I kept telling my husband how much I missed our son and wanting him to call his mom to see how our son was doing! I hope you are able to talk to her while you are gone (and she is probably holding up much better than you guys are!).
