Hello December!

What a year! We've all earned a holiday season filled with heavenly peace...

Last year I vowed to enjoy
each day of the Holiday
  • Supporting local businesses & charities
  • Attending community events
  • Secret random acts of kindness

And you know what? I enjoyed the best December in recent memory, so I plan to repeat this year... Won't you join me?

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

and if you please...
