Today’s Friday Finds post is dedicated to all things Thanksgiving! From decorations to traditions and recipes, you’ll enjoy plenty of goodness as we remember everything we have for which to be thankful.
In addition to a collection of weekly finds, I have a free printable that you can download and use on Thanksgiving Day. It’s at the end of the post.

As promised, here’s the free printable for your holiday dinner. You can print them and leave them at each place setting or hand them out to everyone. Guests can write what they’re thankful for and share their thoughts around the table.
