Happy Thanksgiving! I know I’m a week early but since I don’t have a column next week I wanted to send well wishes to you and your family. I can’t wait to host this year! My daughter will be home from college, my family will be here and all will be right in my world for that one day. I hope you get to spend the day with those you love.  (more…)
