🚜 Weekend Update: 11/3-11/5
barn raisers ball, dance class, guided walk, one more night of granger things
A short roundup this week, as we enter the off-season! Should I switch to monthly events updates? I’d love your feedback, and I’d hate to crowd your inbox if you don’t find it helpful. Another option I plan to test out for December is one full monthly events update, and then weekly ones just available on the website (I know how many emails are rolling in over the holidays).
I have your winter off-season guide coming on Monday! Can’t wait!
