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…

What I know So Far: Life Lessons

As Oprah would say, what I know for sure is this: Life IS short. It goes by so fast, and you go through things that leave you shocked, alarmed, overwhelmed, amazed, and overjoyed. So, I thought I would share a post where I explain what I personally know for sure about life and how to…
