It's just about that time of year again. The weather is getting much cooler and our colors are starting to pop. here in New Hampshire. It got me to thinking about Thanksgiving and how much I love the holiday and this time of year~ It has always been a favorite time for our family.
A perfect time to read Cranberry Thanksgiving and to learn much more about cranberries!
