Remember to Smile.

‘The forecast for the week includes generous helpings of food, loud bouts of raucous banter, and a slight chance of over shopping. I can’t help it. ‘Tis the season of giving, and I love to give. There isn’t anything quite like the feeling of seeing someone’s face light up when they open the perfectly chosen gift.
