    Santa’s elves are striking early this year! You’ve got some fantastic travel gear to giveaway, Nancy. I’m looking forward to seeing who wins the Otterbox and Briggs and Riley gear on December 9!

  2. Wow Nancy you have some great prizes! I agree with Andrea, I can’t wait to see who wins them, but I hope it’s me! 🙂

  3. Hi Nancy, Loved your article about Kauai on I personally love going to Hawaii over Thanksgiving- we just got back from the Big Island and were in Kauai a couple of years ago for T-day. What a low-stress way to enjoy family and just appreciate life! We had our T-day feast at The Fairmont Orchid on the Big Island, and boy their turkey was moist and succulent. Also, I love Paris at Christmas. So beautiful and elegant. We even took our 18 month old with us and he loved the parks and carousels. There’s nothing like seeing an evening concert at Notre Dame at Christmas!
