Happy Hour Time

Welcome, Welcome {Black} Friday! It’s so nice of you to show up; even on a long weekend you are still a favorite day of the week! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed spending time with friends and family, making memories and recalling all the things in your life to be thankful for. Here’s to a great weekend full of holiday activities, Christmas movies, football, having fun with friends and family, and of course Black Friday shopping. Cheers!

“For each new morning with its light, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything thy goodness sends.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
