My little world sometimes mimics a situational comedy. Somedays its “Friends” and “I Love Lucy” others “Stranger Things” and “Game of Thrones.” I could not make up shenanigans I find myself in or the folks I am lucky or not so lucky to be surrounded by every day. Yet in all honesty, this holiday season, I am blessed to have each of these people in my life and happy to honor these characters with a token of gratitude and appreciation. My Gift Guide for the Crazies in Your Life (real & the faux ones in my head):
