      What a treasure trove of goodies for Harvest Time. This season and all its' wonderful colors is one of the things I missed the most while living in Florida. Good to be home.

      Also, as an ode to Harvest Time and the approaching Thanksgiving Holiday, I wanted to thank my favorite elf for all you have done to help me on my Squidoo journey. You took me under your wing, proof read and offered helpful suggestions as I boldly navigated through the unknown Squid Waters. Coming out with a wonderful new friend is one of the biggest blessings Squidoo has given me.

      Happy Harvest Time and Happy Thanksgiving my little elf!
