I am a subscriber of Mandi's "Life Your Way", and today I received her gracious offer to download this book for free. I have purchased other books on Christmas planning, but this one is great! She writes in such a personal style, it's like having an interesting conversation with a friend. Also, the book is full of cute ideas to decorate your house and easy recipes to enjoy the season. I am very thankful it was given to me for free, but I would have paid top dollar for it. And, after reading another review, I have to say love candy cane, and that I even decorate my house around it, so this is a wonderful manner to add more "candy cane" recipes and decorations to my home! Thanks to you Mandi, I will enjoy the Christmas season even more.
