November is a month when the last leaves of a glorious season in Maine are soon to be whisked away.  It’s also a month when families and friends gather to celebrate Thanksgiving across the USA. Whether you are planning to travel near or far, or maybe just to stay at home where it’s cozy and warm, I wish you all the Happiest of Holidays! ~Bette A. Stevens, Maine author

  1. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Bette! Ours alternated between quiet and busy – eleven for dinner. And now the Christmas preparations…

    • Thanks. 🙂 We did have a lovely Thanksgiving, Noelle! Dan was a big help with prep and cleanup and so grateful for that. Previous week spent with trips to EMMC in Bangor, but daughter was home in time to help us celebrate the holiday… She’s recovering, but have follow up to go. You know how that is. Now to get ready or the rest of the holiday! Sending lots of love to you and yours and wishes for a Blessed and Beautiful Christmas. <3

      • So sorry to hear about your daughter. But how lovely she could be with you for the holiday. My husband is off to Virginia to have a three level spinal fusion next Tuesday – Christmas is one big unknown for me.
