Whether you are out taking advantage of the long list of deals retailers are offering, or taking it easy like myself and just letting the day take me where it might, I hope this weekend is restorative and most enjoyable.

I am looking forward to slowly easing into Friday and perhaps poking my head into some of my favorite local shops to say hello and pick up a few Christmas gifts for those on my list. Maybe a nap will follow after or a sneak into the kitchen to nibble on one more piece of pumpkin pie. Who knows? But regardless, this extended holiday weekend is much welcomed and appreciated.

This week readers chose Wednesday’s Why Not . . . Be Grateful? as their favorite post, and if you are taking advantage of the sales, be sure to take a look at the updated post that went live earlier this week. J.Crew, Tibi and Net-a-Porter have been added to the list. Also, be sure to enter TSLL Holiday Giveaway by Sunday December 1st. If you’re a newsletter subscriber you have the opportunity to enter three times, and if you have yet to sign up, you can still enter twice. Click here to find out how.

And before I wrap up, here are a few items discovered on the web you might enjoy:

~An American Neurotic in Paris . . . an thoughtful and honest take on being an expat in Paris
~7 Reasons to Stop Proving Yourself to Everyone Else . . . an opportunity to let the burden go
~Sarah Jessica Parker officially has an Instagram account (@sarahjessicaparker), and she’s been posting images since the opening night of her Broadway play The Commons of Pensacola. Click here to have a look.
~After watching Food Network’s Thanksgiving Live last week and loving seeing the four top chefs I enjoy watching carry the show, this article caught my attention, “How Food Network Created and Lost Foodies“.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by TSLL. As with every day of the week,  I hope you are able to find some time to enjoy a few simple luxuries this weekend. Until Monday, bonjour.
