Holiday Wish List…

  My first Holiday Wish List-on LaVie that is!  You must know…I LOVE the holidays!  The gifts, the parties, travel, family gatherings, church, dressing for church, the sweet holiday cards-all of it!  My shopping addiction is at an all time high during the holidays especially when it comes to shopping for the people I love to find the perfect gift.  I can work off a list, but also enjoy finding “just the thing” that the recipient might never think of and will love to death!!

I will be working hard this year to bring you gifts that are creative, cost-conscious, and fun to give (or receive).  Enjoy!!
