Officially one week until Christmas!?!?
Are you all set? Presents wrapped under the tree…or are you a little last minute like me & still need a few gifts? This holiday season has been weird af. My husband (still feels weird to say that!) & I were talking the other day about how it doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all. Our typical plans have been cancelled (like most people), I haven’t done any holiday baking & this year has just put a damper on everything.
But regardless, we’re trying to find some holiday cheer & joy regardless of this dumpster fire of a year. I’ll be watching some of my favorite holiday movies to get me in the spirit (Home Alone, The Holiday & The Family Stone are a few of my favs). Wrapping gifts also gets me in the mood! Keep reading below for some holiday related articles, recipes & last minute gift ideas!
