Savvy Mommas and Giving Thanks

SavvyMommas - The Latest Scoop Around Town

Just wanted to inform my area friends about this awesome website started by a friend and neighbor here in Boerne. It's an awesome go-to site for all things related to San Antonio and surrounding areas...whether its family activities, shopping, eating out, or whatever! Jamie is a great gal who would love to hear from you by way of comments, so stop by and check out her web site often. She updates it regularly, and its so informative.

We're making our Thanksgiving tree again today. We made one last year, and it actually remained a fixture in our family room for 6 months after Thanksgiving. I tried to take it down once, but Priya asked me why we had to throw it away when we were still thankful for all these things...and not just at Thanksgiving. Good point, sweet girl. Good point.

May you and yours enjoy a peace-filled Thanksgiving, and may your hearts be filled with gratitude for the multitude of blessings in your lives. I know my heart is certainly overflowing with thanks.

Can you believe that I've lived in Boerne for almost 6 years now, and I've never, ever attended Boerne Market Days?

Shocking, I know. I can hear the gasps clear across the Texas Hill Country (or at least in my neighborhood).

Well, I'm pleased to announce that after nearly 6 years I am finally going to make it to Market Days this Saturday, November 14th. I'll be there because I am volunteering at a fantastic event that my friends, Nicole and Amy, organized. It's a bake sale booth that will benefit the Cookies for Kids' Cancer Organization. Nicole and her family have been touched very personally by pediatric cancer...and I'm betting that each of us has had our own experiences with cancer at one time or another. I am excited to do my small part by baking and working the booth. And maybe even get a little Christmas shopping done in the process.

So, this weekend come on out to Boerne, the charming little town we call home. You can enjoy the Holiday Market Days in Main Plaza and stop by the Cookies for Cancer booth to indulge your sweet tooth or to simply make a donation to a worthy cause.

We'll save a cookie for you.
