I finally watched the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, Christmas in Conway last night. It was a wonderful movie, but also quite a tear jerker. Be sure to have plenty of tissues on hand when you watch this one. The DVD is available for purchase.


Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Keep stopping by because I'll have posts up periodically through Twelfth Night/Epiphany on January 6.

Always in spirit....
