Weekly Top 5, Vol. 35 – Thankful

In my last Top 5 post, I said I was going to slow these down, which I have, but I kind of miss them! It’s hard to believe we are now in mid-November, hibernation season as the sun sets early, staring down the Holidays and all the time we get to spend celebrating with friends and family.
