We are working hard to afford all the right gifts for our kids and family members and all the extras for everyone else. But for a small moment during this time a year we ACTUALLY GET TO SIT DOWN, relax, and be thankful for what we have. So take a break, enjoy the holiday and snag your mama’s best recipe! EAT, DRINK & RELAX. “Back to work” will be just around the corner. Happy Thanksgiving from all us at 77 Design Co. Enjoy a piece of pie on us!
