Special places in a home

Winter Wishes

This time of year, my thoughts turn to . . .  the smell of cinnamon, wrapping packages with beautiful ribbon, enjoying live performances of music and most importantly, catching up with friends and family who I always love to see.  From hanging wreaths to eating peppermint, and from riding ski chair lifts to walking on the […]
