Merry Christmas …. Happy Hanukkah … Happy Kwanza… HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

It’s dubbed the most wonderful time of the year and it’s by far my favorite (aside from my birthday). While some people focus on gift giving, gift receiving, I’m thankful to have a family to spend it with.

Dollar Tree DIY | Pumpkin Wreath
