So canoeing isn't something you can do this time of year just anywhere I realize but in Austin, November/December is actually PRIME time to get out on the lake in our opinion!
We took Mr. Liam out for his first ever trip in a canoe and it's hard to say what the thought the whole time but he seemed to really enjoy the idea of being out and about. We do too. ;)
Few pics below!!

I know Kickstart is usually a string of colorful, lovely images but today I wanted to focus on fashionABLE since it's Cyber Monday and they have this cool little free shipping deal going on.
When you buy from fashionABLE, you're helping to create sustainable business in Africa for vulnerable women living in poverty stricken communities. These scarves and other accessories are handmade and just gorgeous...vibrantly colorful and strong.
So I hope you'll jet over there today and stock up on lovely gifts for yourself and/or the women in your life. Shop with a purpose, that's what I always say. ;)
Hope you enjoyed Thanksgiving and now, bring on CHRISTMAS!!

I love this because it's simple and it goes against the grain of traditional holiday colors. If you happened to have a very long dinner table, a single row of these going down the center of it would look striking I think; maybe just a few sprigs of rosemary laced in between if you wanted added greenery. ;)
A week from today is THANKSGIVING!! (Seriously so excited. Everything from Halloween on through New Year's has me so excited.)

So today Mr. Liam is trying to get a much needed nap in (he's been acquiring quite the sleep deficit the last 3 days due to coming down with some crud), Alex is home trying to fend off that same crud as well and I'm just here, typing away....trying to store up wells of energy like water for a trip into the desert. :-P
Our plan had been to get out and look at supplies needed to start our backyard deck project soon but alas, that fell through when it became apparent that none of us would be sleeping much this past weekend. Rescheduling that for a weeknight thing. ;)
Anyway -- onward and upward! We shall persevere! Have a great Monday ~ one more week until Thanksgiving week!!
