This month is when the craziness begins for the holiday season. It's wonderful and exhausting all at the same time. It also is the time of the year that lots of families travel. Traveling is a great time to catch-up on your blog reading! This month we are throwing together a little Round-Up for our Bright Ideas. So kick off your shoes, throw your feet up on the dash, and enjoy your left over turkey sandwich as you read these Bright Ideas!
