One of my most treasured holiday traditions is baking Christmas goodies with my mom. We do it every year. Last year we started spreading it out over two days. It’s nice. It’s less stressful and we can have more fun by taking our time. We always listen to music and reminisce about old days. We tell the same stories over and over, but they never get old to me. It is such a joy. AND it couldn’t have come at a better time this year. 

I have been completely beyond stressed out. Work has been a roller coaster ride of emotions for me. I haven’t been feeling well either. Hooray for autoimmune diseases! 🙃 I needed a day or two to just laugh and eat way too many sweets. It was definitely a fantastic way to let all of that drama fade away far behind me. 

It is so easy to become absorbed in the hustle and bustle of our every day lives these days that we lose sight of the important things. Don’t put off making happy memories with the ones that you love. Before we know it, those people won’t be with us anymore and the memories will be all that we have to hold on to. 

So tell me, what are some of your favorite holiday memories and traditions?
