Happy holiday season. I hope you guys are enjoying this time of year staying warm, having cocoa maybe spiked with Bailey's, and joining the fire and joining friends' family. For me, it's like a whirlwind from mid November to the end of December. It all goes so quickly, like I'm just going down a slide at a playground, it just seems to speed up as the days go by. 


I hope that you're enjoying it.I hope you're finding time to go to a tree lighting or a menorah lighting or just take a moment. I'm looking forward to taking a moment. I have a fireplace in my primary bedroom. And I am a fireplace junkie. And lighting that and curling up under the covers with my husband and watching bad TV while we giggle and eat chips and bed has just been the realization of a lifelong dream. And even though I've only done it one time this past weekend, it will be recreated. 


It's just so nice when something that you've thought that you were going to love and wished you would have finally comes into your life and it's even better than you thought. I feel the same way about the jetted tub that's in my primary bedroom. i always dreamed never had. It's better than I ever could have imagined. There we go. I hope you're finding things to savor this holiday season.


Without further ado, let me get to the questions that are already in my mailbag.
