Happy Holidays!

Welcome to the December issue of lemonade. For the third year, as has now become my tradition, I will celebrate holidays by following my initials:
  • Support Local Businesses & Charities
  • Attend Community Events
  • Secret Random Acts of Kindness

These 3 simple intentions have really helped me to slow down and enjoy the meaning of the season, won't you join me?


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



 and if you please...
