My Christmas wish list this year is very simple in terms of quantity yet very difficult in terms of being fulfilled.

Outdoor Holiday Decor

Don’t forget to decorate outside for the holidays! Adding lights and greens to your home or landscape is cheerful and makes everyone happy.

As I drive home from work each evening, I find that it takes me a little longer to get home this time of year. Swiveling my head from side to side, I drive more slowly or take a longer route in order to take in each home’s outdoorlicious holiday décor. Captivating lights, both white and [Continue Reading]
