November 14, 2018 Julia Daihl


‘Tis the season to be savvy! The holidays bring lots of joy, delicious food, and often stress (let’s not kid ourselves). We stress about how we’re going to host our in-laws and the entire extended family. We stress about what we’re going to bring to the office potluck and finding the time to make it. We even stress about the gifts we are going to give to our co-workers.
