50 Things To Do in November


I’ve always loved November. My sister’s birthday is November 4th, so I always remember a celebration of November throughout my childhood. I just loved knowing that the holidays were right around the corner.

I love Thanksgiving and turkey and potatoes and veggies and all that! Now that I’m a mother, I see my sons getting that same love of November and that excites me, too.

But – November. What else to do in November?
