Opt Out: Happy Thanksgiving!

I’ve posted this blog post on the week of Thanksgiving for the past four years and my feeling is the same so I will run it again.  

Almost every blog and online article I read has tags and links for where I can buy product.  I am weary of the fevered “Buy Me” presence online that’s wrapped in a shiny, overly white and bright sales pitch.   I’m tired of words and phrases like “swoon worthy” “dreamy” “must haves” “ultimate gift guide” and “essentials” to name a few.

This holiday season, let’s give ourselves and our loved ones a breather.  Take at least one day this Thanksgiving and opt for time with your family and friends.  The shopping feeding frenzy is gross and does nothing to feed your soul.

I hope you have a fun, thoughtful Thanksgiving and appreciate time spent with your family and friends.  Step away from the retail noise for a while.  It will always be there to welcome you back.
