I hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your loved ones yesterday. My turkey wasn’t stuffed but I sure was at the end of the meal. My French American Thanksgiving meal was a success. The tarte tatin I made for dessert was a delicious way to wrap things up.

Tomorrow (November 30, 2013) is Small Business Saturday. This is the one day of the year (and hopefully you do it more often) to remind you that shopping small is good for your community. Make your purchases at your local mom and pop shop rather than at the mall or at a large online retailer.
I’m taking this opportunity to remind you that my 2014 nature photography calendars (choose between five different themes) are available for sale. For Black Friday, save 60% by entering code BLKFRIZAZZLE at checkout (valid on 11/29 until midnight). If you buy them tomorrow, look in the left sidebar on my website for the most up-to-date discount coupon code.
All calendars are made to order in the USA so you support the US economy with your purchase, and a self-employed single mom (me!). I also appreciate any referral through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and of course your blog or website.
Shop small – small business Saturday 2013
I wanted to share a few things with you today, so instead of writing several posts, I’m grouping them in a single one, in hodgepodge fashion.
1) I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge: Green theme on my nature photography website, so hop on over if you’d like to see my green picks. Here’s a preview for you:

2) Today only, until 4pm PST, you can use this coupon code 2012LASTFFHS at checkout to receive 50% off on many products in my nature photography store, including my 2013 photo calendar, posters, canvas prints and ornaments. Some of these items would make great Christmas gifts.
Zazzle displays products created by many artists, so even if you don’t buy something from me, you may find interesting items in other stores. Click on your country-specific link below to start your browsing. But remember, this coupon code is for today only!
If you’re not located in the USA, view this Zazzle post on my photography website to access all the country links.
3) I stumbled upon this wonderful quote by Jack Kerouac on Facebook the other day and I wanted to share it with you. This is for all of us who sometimes think we don’t fit the mold, no matter how hard other people have tried to make us fit in there. And for those of us with children who don’t fit the mold, who think outside the box. This is to remind us there’s no point fitting a round peg into a square hole. Let’s embrace differences. The world would be such a boring place if we were all the same.
