The Spirit of Christmas: What The Holiday Season Means To Me

I’ve always loved the holidays. Christmas and New Years have always felt like a time of year where anything good can happen. I love giving gifts to loved ones, I love cooking and baking holiday treats, and I even love the crisp air. Shh, don’t tell anyone! This year, I am able to give back…
