  • Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is serious business for me. Some may find it a trivial chore, but I want a tree that will be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, stepladders and more. But once the mundane is done then the fun begins. Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me. The tree is indeed important because it holds the past. And it must hold the past, in the form of many beloved ornaments, securely and style.

  • Once upon a time in a fairy-tale world, as seen in the original Walt Disney animated films, there lived a lovely young girl who was friends with the animals and birds, and they served her every wish. She knew that one day she would meet her prince, and they would live happily ever after.

    As in most fairy tales, there is a bad, bad person. This is Narissa, the wicked queen, stepmother to her prince. If the prince gets married, the queen would lose all her powers. So she plots to keep them apart with the help of Nathaniel, traitor to the prince.
