Why I Love Hallmark Movies

Life of Leigh

Christmas started in October for me.  Because…Hallmark.  I was already hooked on Hallmark movies.  Then, they started the Christmas marathon and it was a wrap!  (Pun intended) Secret princes, small town bakers, widowed fathers and single business women all fell in love under the mistletoe.  That one sentence sums up every movie.  Now, there are […]
