Bonus time to get your holiday shopping wrapped up…

11 shopping days left until Christmas Eve.  Where do the days go?  I don’t know that I actually remember much of November and  I certainly don’t know how I got to December 14th.  I’m doing my best to live a slow life; being intentional when choosing my activities; focusing on my family, friends and community.  [...]
