Sponsored: 2013 Thank You Printable

Inspired by this month’s entertainment theme for the Fiesta Movement, I wonder what does November mean to you? Is it full of food, family, movies and thanksgiving? Or is it just like every other month?



My November isn’t full of surf days and slow-mo photobooths (how brilliant is that idea?). The entire month took on a more spiritual tone when I was growing up. My mom really focused the whole month on gratitude and thanksgiving. Making sure the holiday wasn’t just some speedbump on the super-speedy raceway to Christmas.

I love that she protected Thanksgiving.


I want to guard it in my home, too. Christmas decor (not that I really have any) doesn’t show up until after our blessed Thanksgiving weekend. Neither does the music. Perhaps there’s so little Christmas music I actually like, I’d hate for it to be on repeat longer than 3 1/2 weeks.

How should we celebrate Thanksgiving? Is it just a day to be had towards the end of November where we eat more than we should have, nap and watch sports games? Or is it a day where we take stock in the life’s many blessings? I’ll be doing a little bit of both (minus sports, I don’t do sports).


I encourage you to spend some time this month (we could all spare a half hour once a week, right?) to write a heartfelt thank you to someone who has inspired or helped you. To make things easy, I’ve designed “Thank You” postcard for you to print from home. I’ve done half the work for you. All you need is a pen and a stamp.


This month I’ll be working on writing more Thank You notes and prepping for a meaningful Thanksgiving celebration. Having several of these postcards on hand will help me achieve that.
