The holidays come way too quickly. And by the time I think about decorating with boughs of holly, it turns into “oh crap, I forgot to buy Aunt Maria her annual set of dish towels and/or I’m going to have to go hit up the local bakery for my contribution to the companies cookie exchange. This year, I have a plan. And it’s a good one.
