In April 2011, I had been a Lauren’s Hope customer for a while already, and I was excited to share my family’s story on the LH blog.

The winter holidays are traditionally a time of peace, love, compassion, and good will. They're also a time for celebrations, special meals, family gatherings, excitement, travel, bright lights, voices raised in song, and so many other happy events and treats.
