About the DVD
Newly widowed Kathy (Kellie Martin) plans to skip out on decking the halls and trimming the tree this Christmas, trying to avoid anything that will bring back memories of her late husband. The only Christmas tradition she will observe is baking cookies for her friends, a passion since she was a child. When Kathy meets handsome Christmas tree shop owner Tim (Cameron Mathison), their undeniable chemistry - along with an ornament Tim gives her that symbolizes hope - helps Kathy open up to the joys of the season again. With the support of her best friend Jenna (Jewel Staite), and the budding relationship with Tim, Kathy begins to embrace the hopeful message of the ornament.

Although Kathy wants to take a chance on Tim, she struggles to find the balance between preserving the memory of her husband and moving on with her own future. Is the Christmas ornament a sign that she can have a hopeful future?

My Take on the DVD
This is a touching story about a widow, Kathy, who is trying to decide her future. She had owned a bicycle shop with her husband who passed away, but she really wants to become a baker and has the talent. It is through friends old and new that she finds her heart to move forward in loving someone new and in taking a path on a career she loves.

It is a sweet story which probably has a predictable ending, but it is entertaining and the actors do a fine job in their roles.
