I’m a child of the 1980′s but the decor was cheesy at best. Jennifer and her husband turned Magnum PI’s bathroom into their own  getaway :)

    Hi, Jeff! Thanks for the email, and happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! We were able to skype with one son and his wife, our daughter still lives with us, and our other son came down for an overnight visit. It was heaven on earth! I am grateful for my family and for friends like you who are willing to share their expertise, and in the process “connect” person-to-person!

      That’s wonderful Lillace, I’m so happy that you were able to have a fantastic Thanksgiving with your family. Being able to Skype or FaceTime is such a blessing. My brother lives overseas with his family and we are fortunate to be able to FaceTime with them.

      Thanks so much for counting me as a friend. I love sharing my DIY adventures and if you or someone else can benefit that makes me fill awesome.

    That was such a nice email! I just opened it (I’m a little behind, lol.) You’re so right about family and friends being the better experience. I’m disappointed by the way it’s getting so commercial – they even had “Black Thursday” this year.
    Oh well! I really liked the fuzzy socks swiffer, and may just try it out!
    Thanks, and happy new year!

      Thanks Jan, I feel just like you. That’s why Thanksgiving to me is the best holiday. No gift pressure, just getting together with friends and family.

      Hope you’re having a great year thus far :D
