Four french hens, three turtle doves, two peacocks and a jingle in the bell. This is how I sing the lyrics while trying to do it all and be gracious all along. I can’t get it all right. Believe me, the birds are calling. It seems crazy that at midnight a sigh of relief will come over me while I’m wrapping gifts when I learn that a major box store will be open at six am. I try to buy very little online. I try to support as many small stores as possible. I try to be green when I can. Sometimes, I need to buy legos at a chain store. I think there is room for everyone and everyone should be supported. Small stores are important because each of them curate a very personal story. We need the brick and mortar because quite frankly, and I’m not trying to quote one of my favorite holiday albums, but people need people. People who need people are the luckiest people in the world. Right now, people, we need presents. Sometimes, they are at Barnes and Noble. Sometimes, they are simply down the street at your local go to… so please support when you can make that choice. The truth is most of us are juggling a lot of things on our plate right now. Lucky for us, little kids feel like a cinch. Kids are over the moon over most toys big and small. We have such a lovely assortment this season. Here are some nice ideas. AND so many, many thank you’s and heartfelt gratitude goes out to each and every one of you I see! Really!
