Amy’s Sweet Holiday Wishlist

To get into the holiday spirit, my team and I thought it would be fun to put together fun holiday “wish” lists.  These aren’t gift guides and some items may be pricey, but hey, they are just “wish” lists.  We can dream a little, right?  When I saw the wish list from each of my team members, I realized how much of everyone’s personality was in their wish list. I thought I would share them…

Merry Monday: Respectfully Red

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids
This feature was submitted to us by Linda at Harper Event Design in Australia.

Nothing warms up our insides during the holidays more than a cup of steaming hot chocolate (okay..except for maybe a hug from our kids).
