Getting Ready for the Holiday Season

Getting Ready for the Holiday Season

It always seems as if the holidays always sneak up on us. After all, Thanksgiving is just 2 weeks away! So whether you are getting ready to host 35 people for a Thanksgiving dinner or if you are preparing for the celebrations of Hanukkah or Christmas, you can get ready early and simplify your work and enjoy the holidays so much more.

Planning

As we get ready for the holidays, let’s take a minute to remember why we celebrate this time of the year. It’s not about gifts, parties and obligations. It’s a time to give thanks for our many blessings, to celebrate the wonderful miracles of Christmas, Hanukah; Kwanzaa; to celebrate the coming of a brand New Year full of possibilities. Try to keep this in your heart and mind this season to keep things in perspective.

These Boots Were Made For Walking

These Boots Were Made For Walking

OK, I know it’s not exactly boot weather right now (Hello, flip flops!!!), but it is the perfect time of year to make sure your boots will be ready for walking in the fall.

Tall boots have a habit of falling over and if you don’t wear them often you run the risk of getting creases.  You can buy specially made boot shapers that range in price from $5 to $15.  Yikes! If you are boot lover, that can get pricey!
