I believe in Santa Claus. From as early as I can remember until last year, I have always believed in that wonderful man in the red suit with the white beard and the bag filled with presents and yumminess and the love that wraps it all up in a bow. But as the 2020 [...]

What a year. I don’t know how else to say it. But as much as things have changed, I’m glad many things have stayed the same…or in some cases, have even strengthened. For one, I always knew how much I enjoy spending time with my kids. But after spending so much time at home [...]
