We’re heading out a bit early this week to spend Thanksgiving with our families, but first I wanted to share some of my favorite links from the week, and to tell you how thankful I am for all of our wonderful readers, for the incredible wedding vendors who contribute their talents to Snippet & Ink, and for our sponsors who help us keep things running. Thank you to all of you, and Happy Thanksgiving!
