The holidays are approaching and based on many people's Facebook posts, a lot of people have their trees up already so, in celebration of lighting up some trees, don't miss the  Cavalcade of Lights  happening this weekend. 
 
The holidays also can bring with them a little craziness so below I've included a  piece offering 5 tips on staying organized this season, written by my former co-worker, Leslie Jordan, who has started her own business as a professional organizer!
