Christmas and holiday season
Its been busy around here. Serar’s Christmas party was this last weekend. Making candy for presents with lots and lots of unusual mishaps. My mom’s house finally closed (that’s a story for the record books and perhaps a future post…ugh!) Just to name a few.

It is no secret that I love Christmas. And each year, I try to do something a little different.

After many years of running my Mary Kay business and feeling completely worn out by the end of the Christmas season, I got fed up. When you run a retail business, trying to manage your own time and personal obligations becomes quite challenging and eventually becomes the horrible feeling of obligation. That is the last thing that I ever wanted… Continue reading
