My drink of choice:
I’m not very fond of coffee. To get through the many hours of studying in medical
school, my caffeine of choice was…chocolate! On a cold winter night or a snowy

Perfectly Christmas (Perfectly Book 5) by Linda O’Connor #christmasatvivis

My mom says that her favourite year was when I bought gifts throughout the year for each of the holidays – New Years Eve champagne glasses, a Valentines Day cookie cutter, a St. Patrick’s Day table top decoration – well you get the idea, because she realized that I was thinking…
