Smartest things heard in…December!


Tis’ the season is always the theme of December. Aside from a month long sugary, sweet, (absolutely delicious) binge of junk food from the numerous holiday parties attended; the month brought about the first Christmas in 10years that my Grandma Martinez was home to enjoy it & another holiday to enjoy with my Grandma Cooper, who is fighting her 4th bout with cancer. It’s a season to celebrate birthdays (both my parents & both my nieces) & of course, the birth of Jesus. It’s a stressful month, but it’s a joyful one!
