I do actually intend to pick through each and every email, especially since I get to host Thanksgiving this year! This is mega-exciting for me. One of the biggest reasons Mister and I moved from our old closet to a slightly larger one (think "dressing room," folks) is because I love to entertain but had no space to do it in our old apartment.

It's a good thing I have so many more tasty things left on this week's menu, because I'm already looking forward to plotting next week's (and Thanksgiving! so off I go). Sweet dreams are made of this!
