    A Heifer International gift for the holidays - theartmuseHow was your Thanksgiving? We enjoyed a nice, quiet dinner at home before heading to the movies to watch Creed. You guys have to see it. If you loved the Rocky franchise, you will get the feels. Trust me. There were several nostalgic moments that almost made me shed a tear. Alright, I did shed a few tears. Quite a few.

It was the perfect film to end a day filled with gratitude and happiness, and I’m glad my son and I got to enjoy it together.
