Here's something you may not know about me. I love wrapping gifts. I'm not the best, but I love doing it, especially when I have a lot of space. When I don't, I'm going to start using this gift-wrapping hack!

I didn't know I loved gift wrapping until I volunteered to help the Rochester Habitat for Humanity wrap gifts at the Apache Mall. It was a long long lonnnng time ago, but the memory is vivid. My level of quality improved greatly just because of the huge tables, easy to cut rolls of wrapping paper, the readily available tape and was magnificent.

Every year after that, as long as I've been in Rochester, I've wrapped gifts at the mall. Recently, with my sister Joan (for Habitat for Humanity). It almost always falls on Christmas Eve, and I love the excitement and fatigue you see in everyone. Means they're just like me.


Speaking of holidays...80% of Rochester won't serve this on Thanksgiving, and here's why they should!
