Here we are officially in the holiday season. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for reading and to wish you glorious and happy holidays. While it seems like this year as flown by, there is still so much going on over the next month and a half, and I want to ensure you take advantage of all the wonderful up-coming events and member discounts for a full and joyful holiday season.
