November has arrived! Thanksgiving month is my favorite. Pumpkins, stuffing, and pretty leaves…what more could a lady want? A mustached man in her life? Yep, November also means it’s Movember and Josh is growing a serious ‘stache. October was a month of pink pride and helping raise funds for breast cancer research and November promises mustaches galore to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues. Aside from being a worthy cause, Josh is happy that he gets to grow a mustache and I’m happy that I can say things like “Soup Strainer,” “Face Furniture,” “Lip Toupée,” “Mouth Brow,” and “Snot Mop”.
November reminds us to be thankful for all of the good people and things in our lives. There are endless ways for you to express your gratitude for the good in your life, if you’re looking for a few ways to give back, here are some links:
