Seasons Greetings from Mills & Associates

Seasons GreetingsI really enjoy this time of year.  It means that I get to spend more time with my family and splurge eating some foods that I would otherwise shun.

I hope that all of the readers of the Mills Law Blogs will also be sipping something warm, eating a little too much and staying safe out of the weather.  Most importantly, I hope that you all will be sharing this wonderful Season with those that you love.

From all of us to all of you, have a Happy Holiday.
