The holiday season has arrived and I couldn’t be happier to let the cold weather roll in and dark clouds form a blanket over the sky. I sleep much better this time of year, curled up underneath my bedspread after watching Christmas movies and drinking spiked egg nog. I love the holidays. People...

So much can be accomplished but its only as much as you want to.
