I had a former student text me the other day asking for help filling out a college application. (You might be wondering what this has to do with Thanksgiving Treats, I promise I’ll get there!!)  He had a whole long list of strengths for himself, but couldn’t think of any weaknesses…It made me chuckle at […]

Pumpkins have the distinct privilege of representing two Holidays…I can’t think of any other holiday symbols that get cross promotion.  Santa’s elfs aren’t lighting fireworks on the4th of July.  Cupid is absent from St. Patrick’s Day.  We don’t make hard-boiled eggs on Halloween. Yet somehow, the pumpkin gets to to be in the spotlight for […]
