Twelve days to Joy Book

“She didn’t need another gift as long as she lived thanks to her dog, Oliver, he was her gift–a gift that gave her unconditional love and devotion, every single day since she had rescued him.”







Cathy’s Favorite Holiday Candle Scent

My beautiful daughter, Meaghan, and her husband Kevin started a 100% American grown natural soy candle making business. Even the wicks are all-natural! I know what you are thinking, a lot of times “natural” products do not have that same strong scent as artificial candles, but these candles stand alone and the scents are long-lasting!

Bring the aroma of Christmas into your home with my favorite scent, Fraser Fir!
