Happy Sunday! We just got back from a quick trip in Arizona and jumped right into Thanksgiving festivities. Our flight arrived 1am the night before Thanksgiving and the next afternoon we were celebrating at my parents’ house. It was wonderful. There is something special about being in your childhood home surrounded by family and your new growing family. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with love and laughter. This Sunday, I’ll be doing some Cyber Monday research and finishing up articles for the week. On that note, below are this week’s links from around the web.

Lastly, Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom on truth, scale and influencers. “When I’m on my bike, I go across the Golden Gate Bridge and it’s full of people taking selfies. And I’m sure that drives them to want to go, because they have to show people they visited San Francisco. But I think broadly, you’re having an experience, and the joy of that experience you want to go share with people you love. And I think that’s great. That’s why we created the platform.”
