It’s the most wonderful time of the year! This is the first time in several years that I haven’t had a big book deadline over the holidays. I’m really enjoying slowing down a bit and having time to do more of the things that make this season feel extra magical.
One thing that’s happening? A gingerbread house making night!
How beautiful is that gingerbread house above? My friend Rebekah from Old World Market posted it on Instagram (her sisters made it!) and it stopped me right in my scroll. I’m quite confident mine will look nowhere near as glorious as that one, but I can dream! ;)
A few more Christmas activities on our list:
- Making Christmas cookies (maybe these vegan gluten-free gingerbread cookies again, they turned out so cute last year!)
- Going to a Christmas Eve church service with our whole family. Plus we are hosting extended family this year!
- Driving around our favorite neighborhoods, admiring houses decked out in Christmas lights
- Sipping hot cider and watching Father of the Bride (not a Christmas movie, but it’s a family favorite this time of year!)
What is one magical thing you’re excited to experience this Christmas season?
