It’s officially after Thanksgiving and before Christmas – I think this time of year is the most wonderful “Holiday” of all. The wrapping, the advent calendars, the lights, the tree, the gifts, the music – everything! This has definitely been a wonderful season this year, I’ve certainly been enjoying it so far.
