I love the holiday season. And for the first time this year I’ll be celebrating as a mom. This holiday season we’re teaming up with our friends at Wish Farms for the eat, drink, and be berry promotion to inspire your family with merry & berry holiday recipes. These are perfect to enjoy whether you’re having a Christmas gathering or staying in with the family and looking to prepare some extra fun treats.
There’s something about holiday traditions and time spent with family, that make them a magical time. I’m one of those people who get excited whenever I see holiday decorations in the stores even if there are still several holidays between now and then. If you ask my husband, I have way too many holiday decorations. It’s a wonder that anything else can fit in the attic with all the storage containers!
I love the traditions of the holiday season. Christmas lights, decorating cookies, Christmas music on the radio, adding all the trimmings to the tree, and yes even wrapping presents. It’s the traditions of the holiday season that really bring a family together. Whether watching your favorite holiday movie, making your favorite holiday treat, or dressing up in matching PJs, Time spent together during the holiday season is pricesless.
