Wow! It has been nearly a month since my last Saturday Six, I really don’t know how that happened. Well actually, I do. Lot of small trips strung together between work weeks, plus a week unplugged then a week getting unburied! The holiday season is swirling by, no time to catch any of the spirit so to speak, I am simply trying to catch my breathe.
I am not doing the Holiday Highlights this year nor my annual 12 Days of Christmas giveaways this year although I will continue to spotlight a few small businesses I appreciate as part of my continuing J’adore series. I am collaborating with others for a $500 cash giveaway, that comes in handy for anyone (and runs until December 16th!
Now, here are my picks for Saturday Six.
 I was on the cruise boat when all the hubbub was happening about Hostess. And despite having not eaten anything they have produced in years, I certainly felt a pang of nostalgia when I heard they were going out of business. I definitely ate Hostess products, as well as Little Debbie, growing up. Ding Dongs were my favorite! So of course I loved the post that Jen of Are you there God, it’s me Generation X wrote on the topic. She had to write it. Hostess is such a quintessential part of the Generation X childhood it would have been a crime if she hadn’t. And in this awesome eulogy, she did not fail.
 Fresh eyes are always a good thing. Whether it is at home or at work…or even Paris. It’s something that Lindsey of Lost in Cheeseland discovered when she played tour guide to a friend visiting and got a whole new perspective on a place she sees every day.
 And speaking of fresh eyes, the incredible experience that Sivan Askayo documented as she shadowed a life coach who has a rather unique program in Paris. I haven’t investigated Tonya and Le Voyage Paris enough to say, but just based on Sivan’s post and photos, I want to do this program!
 Speaking of food, I really enjoyed Christine of C’est Christine’s post on the best cliche eats in New York City. I am not ashamed to say that there are definite cliche restaurants that I like. In Paris I love Angelina’s and La Coupole, total tourists spots, but still favorites! I also loved Christine’s post on finding a balance between a fixed life and wanderlust, something I think a lot of travelers struggle with.
 Lacey of The Road is Life has moved into my neck of the woods, sort of. I need to catch up on the how and the why, but I am really enjoying her new experiences in Northern California. She has always taken beautiful photos, I am always drawn into the, and her Instagram feed is definitely one to follow, but she is also quite magical with the written word and I was completely in awe of a post she wrote this past week on love, storms, huskies and travelers.
That’s it for this week!
