Happy Hour Time

HAPPY HOUR TIME 
Welcome, Welcome to the first Friday of December, which just happens to be the month that contains my favorite holiday, Christmas! I hope everyone is having a fantastic start to the holiday season; with the lights, decorations, chance of snow, and the sense of Christmas magic in the air, how could it not be a great season thus far. I know that everyone is ready for finally be here; for me, after enjoying a long weekend the week ahead always seems longer then usual, so…thank goodness Friday is here again! Cheers to you and to the holiday season! May your weekend be merry and bright! Cheers!

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” 
~ Nelson Mandela
