If you are like me, Black Friday means kayaking with my family, spending a day resting after the intense planning and execution of Thanksgiving. I don't spend much time in the kitchen so such a day is a challenge for me! If you don't want to leave the comfort of your home to shop for Christmas, visit the shopping page at the Hearts Desire website. There are great fashions and jewelry to select from.   or it you have questions, just give me a call - 941-302-1069
