    The holidays are my favorite time of the year because they allow me to focus on the people who really matter in my life.  As a Working Mom, I spend a lot of time juggling my many responsibilities including being a mom, a full-time educator, a wife, a professional blogger, and much more.  

    I like to prioritize my time during this season to redirect my attention to where it truly belongs, which is on my husband and my sons.  They are the center of my world and I cherish every opportunity to spend quality time with them.

Life is turned upside down for the handsome mayor of Homestead when a Hollywood movie comes to shoot there in the middle of the Christmas season. And when the movie's producer - and leading lady - starts falling for the mayor, a widower whose precocious daughter just happens to be her biggest fan, Christmas in Homestead gets a whole lot more complicated for everyone.

    Hallmark Channel is my family’s prime destination for all things holiday related! This season, we look forward to original movie releases such as A Wish For Christmas, Christmas Cookies, My Christmas Dream and much more! This Thanksgiving Day we will be tuning in to watch “Christmas in Homestead” at 8pm/7c!

    The movie stars Taylor Cole and Michael Rady.  One of the most famous actresses in world (Cole) heads to the Christmas-obsessed town of Homestead, Iowa to shoot a holiday-themed.  She is thrown for a loop when a romance brews between her and local inn keeper and single dad, Matt (Rady).  As she gets a taste of small-town life and people who give of themselves without asking anything in return, she discovers the true meaning of Christmas.
