winter brews.

in honor of today being national lager day + with christmas only 15 short days away, I felt it was only appropriate to share my favorite wintertime brews.

these six seasonal craft beers are not only scrumptious, but their labels will play into your holiday decorations. bring to your next holiday party. or enjoy at home, in front of the fire.

[or while watching ABC Family, like I did last night. I had to have something that made me feel like an adult, while I was watching pretty little liars. #GuiltyPleasure].

I choose books by their covers and craft beers by their labels.

happy wednesday.

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.
