Happy New Year!

As the sun sets on this year and dawn ushers in anew, I wish you and yours all the best of the New Year.

Sharing the warm and fuzzies

The news can often be doom and gloom, but at this time of year I always look forward to the attention that’s paid to the phenomenon of giving…who to give to, where to buy, what to give, even the motivations and the benefits of giving.

With the fun, there is undeniably stress associated with all that needs to get done at this time of year. With that, I got to thinking about ways to minimize this stress.
