How to: STAYCATION

I always like to bounce outta town right after Christmas, but this year my family decided against doing so because the snow is too much to deal with at our cabin right now. Since my dreams of a winter getaway were crushed, I decided I had to do something about it. Enter: STAYCATION. I’ve heard about them before, but never tried one. What is a staycation? It’s exactly what it sounds like. Basically, a vacation where you don’t leave. You can do things at home or just in your area – whatever you want! You just stay where you’re at…no…

Presents for Christmas!

I always get quite sad the day after Christmas, simply because it’s over. Not the day, but the entire season. The buildup is what makes it the best time of year, Christmas Eve being my absolute favorite day. Christmas Eve is like the ultimate day of anticipation. Even though I get sad, I just have to keep reminding myself that it will come again next year. Still, the season just always ends way too soon. I wish it could be December 1st through the 25th forever. Even though I have to move on with regular life, I’m so grateful for having…

Holiday Soiree

The holiday season is always a busy time for everyone, but this year it feels especially jam packed with things to do. For example, last week was insanely busy for me because it consisted entirely of prepping for my family’s Holiday Soiree! Back in the day, my parents threw an annual Christmas party during the holidays and invited all of our friends and family. It was always one of my favorite days of the year growing up because it was like a huge reunion for everyone I loved most, and I got to see people I didn’t normally get to spend time with.…
