Gift Giving with Love just feels GOOD!

It’s that time of year when I LOVE finding the perfect gifts for my family and friends. I’ll spend hours looking for something with a WOW factor.

As beautifully written by Mother Teresa, “It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.” As we approach the holidays, the gifts have been ordered and the shipments … [Read more...]
