Only 9 more days of the Advent season. Our “Gifts of Togetherness” has helped slow down this month as we focus on the moments and memories vs. the stuff and the shopping. You can see my original list of activities we do this month here, and you can follow along on the daily activities here.
I do love shopping - I just like it in moderation, especially this time of year. Right now I’m building my gift list on Amazon and plan to have everything shipping at once.
We are gifting our children with surprise experiences that will go along with the theme of their 4 gifts (want, need, read, wear). Unwrapping their passports will be their “need” and also one very small clue.
This weekend we made our annual gingerbread village (complete with a town square Christmas tree and a blizzard of powder sugar of course). We plan on doing this activity tonight!
Between the holiday parties and the girls’ nights out, I’ve run out of festive outfits. I’ve now worn this one too many times. I could use something like this to make it through the rest of this season!
Last day to order these lovely earrings for your BFF to get by Christmas is on the 17th!
My daughter and I plan on making these to add to our little boxes of Hygge inspired gifts in my last blog post.
Have you ever done a progressive dinner? We did this with friends last weekend (each home hosted a different course) and our home served the desserts with Hot buttered rum and a White Christmas Cocktail. Now I’m looking for a few more Christmas drinks for entertaining - let me know if you have a favorite.
We always make this gingerbread recipe on Christmas eve, but everyone is already on sugar overload so I’m considering making this one instead… wondering if they’d know the difference. I’ll keep you posted :)
I will travel for the best breakfast food!
Finally discovered how to use a foam roller - this doubles as a workout and a massage!
Enjoy the Joy!
