Every year, my friend Jackie hosts a cookie swap for all of our group of girlfriends.  We all look forward to it and plan ahead for what we will be doing.  All along, I had fun “Whoville” inspired theme I was planning for.  But as they do every year, the Christmas stressors hit me full [...]

I am obsessed with gold. I mean it, I can’t stop. Gold everything, everywhere. Today I wrapped some gifts-of course, they had to be adorned with gold. My favorite thing to do is buy a long strand of over-the-top tinsel garland and cut pieces. I tie the piece to the top of the gift and voila! [...]

One of my favorite things about the sweet, small(ish) town in NC that I live in is the adorable “bubble” of life that is Lake Norman.  We have an amazing neighborhood, with amazing people.  Year after year, we celebrate different events with fun get-togethers that have become “tradition” for us.  One of the traditions is [...]

I remember the excitement I used to get from popping open the little cardboard door on my childhood advent calendar and discovering the candy surprise that awaited.  The little things like that are what create the ”magic” of the holiday season for kids.  I wanted to recreate that magic for B in a creative way. So, I got busy [...]
