Episode 7: A Dime for the Holidays

The holidays can be fraught, but in this episode, we’re bringing you some funny. So take a break from any family drama and listen to these three DimeStories.  (note: there is quite a bit of bleeping in these stories)

Her essays have appeared in Orange Coast Magazine, Fine Homebuilding, Threads, Quilting Today, The Orange County Register and The Laguna Beach Independent.
