How was your long Thanksgiving weekend? We had a nice, lazy time at home, and hosted Thanksgiving at our home with some family. I also attended a baby shower yesterday, for a friend who’s due late next week.
I caught a few articles this weekend, and here were some I liked!
Financial Articles I Enjoyed
