I am just in the best, cheeriest, most holiday-tastic mood today, guys! I’ve worked really hard to try to get a big chunk of my holiday to-do list done before December started, and let me tell you, it feels awesome to know that I have so much done already. Our holiday cards are already in the mail (dropped them in the mailbox on our drive up to Thanksgiving dinner). All of our Christmas shopping is done (wrapping still has to happen—but I love wrapping gifts!). I’ve already made and frozen a whole bunch of cookie dough for holiday baking. I have a ton of fun holiday recipes already developed and ready to show off to you guys. Our guest rooms are all organized and ready to accept holiday visits from loved ones. We went and nabbed our Christmas tree (a beautiful 10 foot blue spruce) on Black Friday, and we’re slowly, but surely, decking the halls. And I have so many fun events and happenings going on in the month of December. Bring it on, St. Nick!
