No doubt the holidays are the busiest time of the year. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of busy airports, end of year deadlines and last minute shopping. This year while you’re out and about, take a minute to treat yourself or meet a friend for coffee or brunch. Support local businesses by stopping in for a bite or grab a drink to carry with you as you do some holiday shopping.
