Christmas is far and away my favorite holiday. I love everything about it, from the event that inspired it, hoping for a white one, to wrapping presents. But mostly I love having family and friends gathered, and sharing traditions. ~ Ellen Hopkins As I think about this holiday season, I...

Notes from Steve

This week is Thanksgiving. Even though I’m not always full of bubbling gratitude; I’m thankful for a lot of things. “What?” The cat I got last week literally climbed the walls all night, last night. He was insane. Today, though, he’s good, and I’m thankful (exhausted but thankful) for him....
