We’re a little over a week away from Christmas and I have finally fully embraced the festive spirit. I’ve done my fair share of baking, written cards, placed poinsettias around the house and chosen outfits for the holidays. Our weekend plans are low key but in the same festive pre-Christmas mood: there’s a little bit of shopping left to be done, more baked goods to play with, preparations for a friend’s Christmas party (I’ll be making caramel corn and the tastiest guac) and hopefully an evening spent at home with some wine and Scrooged. Hope your plans are similarly festive and relaxed, y’all!
