A Novella by the authors of Write Integrity Press and guest writer, Marji LaineHave you been reading The Christmas Tree Treasure Hunt? What a fun story – yes, I’m reading along! In fact, the last two nights I’ve stayed up past midnight to read the next episode – sort of like a bedtime story! Sweet!

But that’s not all there is to this project! Each day the authors are sharing their favorite Christmas recipes and memories at the Write Integrity Press blog. Today’s article, from Ruth O’Neil, inspired me to actually cook – yes, ME! And then I shed a few tears with her Christmas memory story. I know, not so hard to believe, but a dear story with some great pictures.
