    I pride myself on thoughtful gift giving. I believe that everyone has a Christmas talent.

    My mother and husband can wrap presents with the precision that would rival any North Pole elf.

    Lactose intolerance isn’t the same as a food allergy to milk. It means the body can’t easily digest lactose, which is a type of natural sugar found in milk and dairy products.
