I am the type of gal who tries to take a moment to reflect on my blessings daily as I never take for granted the beautiful people in my life or the opportunities that have come my way.  However, this time of the year really kicks those thankful feelings into gigantic grateful mode.
I apologize for the length of this superstar post, but there are so many great deals for y'all, I thought one post was better than three.  Not to mention, my kids would call me a very greedy bee to keep all of these hot deals to myself.
