I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Christmas day than with part 2 of the “MDS Interview” with Miles Redd. Better yet we get to find out his favorite people, places and things! I find this part of the interview so intriguing because i get to find out where Miles likes to shop, where he eats and what he reads- you will too!

today, as you spend time with your favorite people, in your favorite places, giving and receiving favorite and thoughtful things, remember how much we have to be thankful for, we are truly blessed! my wish is that the spirit of the season will continue even after the holidays are over.

Merry Christmas to everyone! enjoy a day full of favorites, with the added gift of Miles Redd, or in this case more of Miles Redd- My favorite!
