Welcome Holiday Guests in Style
Less is more
Julee's last piece of advice: "While walking the dogs this morning with Bill, I thought: We cannot emphasize enough at holiday time that 'less is more'— for all of the obvious reasons, but also to reduce stress. Look around at what you already own and use it in a new way, remember familiar and loved recipes and tap into nature. Give treasured possessions of yours to people you love. Give of yourself! Don't just buy. If we remember it's all about love and laughter, and helping others, we'll all get so much more from the holidays!"
