Oh, what a delightfully busy time of year… The planning, the decorating, the cooking, the parties, and of course, the shopping, shopping, shopping! So many of you took the time this year to seek out American-made gifts. On behalf of the companies and workers who proudly produced those gifts, thank you. Some of you turned to us for help, a gift we were glad to give. Come back in the new year, bring some friends, and we'll keep the USA Love going all year long.

Now it is time for family, reflection, and relaxation.
We'll be taking a break from our regular posting schedule this week.
