COOKIE SWAP: Dara Girard
Holiday wish for the Reader:
This is my favorite time of the year. I love watching holiday parades on the T.V., special holiday shows, snow, the music, the goodwill people do for each other at this time and of course, getting together with my family. I hope that each of you have a wonderful holiday, but remember -- don't overspend or overeat, just enjoy!
Model turned photographer, Mariella Duvall likes to be in control, magazine owner Ian Cooper likes to be obeyed. When a major project forces them to work
together, one of them is forced to surrender.
