Happy Thanksgiving! See You Monday


We’re jetting off to our various Thanksgiving-friendly dinner tables, so we’ll be gone tomorrow and Friday. We wish everyone a happy, joyous, and peaceful Thanksgiving and will look forward to Monday, when we can all share our favorite weight loss tips and Black Friday horror stories.

In the meantime, be sure to check out these great Thanksgiving-related resources and reflections that we’ve got right here on Kveller:
