the 12 days of christmas.

on sunday, december 14th, we will be a mere 12 days from christmas. to ensure we fit it all in, I’ve created a countdown with festive tasks for each day. everything from baking cookies, to a friendly gingerbread house competition, and watching your favorite holiday movie. follow along with mine or create your own. but whatever you do, don’t let christmas arrive before you fully enjoy this time of year.


and do not forget to fill the stockings along the way.

12 days of christmas

mark your calendars.

happy monday.

holiday challenge.

we have somehow¬†reached the middle of november. which means, it is time to begin making holiday plans. instead of creating my usual “make the most of the season” bucket list, I’ve decided to issue a challenge to all of you. create your own take on an advent calendar. every day leading up to christmas, all 25 of them, you must complete a holiday task you’ve made for yourself.

the best way [I’ve found] to go about doing this is to write down as many activities as you can possibly think of for your holiday season, big & small. [examples: decorating the tree, making holiday cookies, drinking hot cocoa, watching your favorite holiday movie, visit santa]. then look at your calendar and begin filling in the activities for each day. if there is an “impossible day” [where you can’t get the family together. or the fiance is out of town], I assign those “stocking stuffer days”. where¬†you put one item in each person’s stocking. the item can be as simple as a note or a piece of candy.

don’t forget to make it look pretty + festive.

I will be sharing my 25 days of christmas calendar on friday, november 29th.

I encourage you to make one too, and share along with me. or if you’d like, borrow mine. but be warned, there will be many days that include drinking holiday-inspired cocktails.

who’s with me?
