Things to Do (Nov. 23-29)

And here we are at Thanksgiving! A moment to reflect on all we are thankful for. For us, we are thankful for all of you who follow our adventures, and those who join us weekly on Behind The Mitten to discover all that our beautiful state has to offer. (And to laugh with us – or at us, and all of our mitten hilarity – or obnoxiousness depending on your opinion!) Regardless, we appreciate all of the support and kind words that you have offered over the past year.  Hopefully we have helped you make some discoveries about our great state. Here are some more great discoveries. Our list of things to do over the next week. It may be a little holiday heavy, but can we really have too much holiday right about now? Check the list and get to making some memories! In the meantime, we will see you weekends on Behind The Mitten!
