Hello December!

The holiday hype seemed to start earlier than ever this year. Black Friday and Cyber Monday nearly eclipsed Thanksgiving! Yet, these are not holidays-- just schemes to drive sales toward "one perfect day" on December 25-- yikes!


I'm not buying in this year, instead I will try to enjoy each day of the Holiday SEASON by: 

  • Supporting local businesses & charities
  • Attending community events
  • Secret random acts of kindness

Won't you join me? 

I wish each of you a happy, healthy holiday season & a peaceful new year!

 and if you please...
