Do you need peace during the holidays?
The craziness that is the holiday season is nearly upon us.
It is hard to believe because although it takes a whole year to come, it just seems to sneak up on us “so fast!”
In 40-something days it will be Christmas. For our family it begins with the week before Thanksgiving and volunteering for Operation Christmas Child’s Collection Week. This rapidly slides into Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and then BAM! Christmas preparations are upon us.
As we’re all getting ready for the inevitable gift giving, card addressing, treat making and meal planning, I’ve gathered some resources to help you out. Some are posts with helpful lists or recipes, others are resources for purchase (or free!)
Just a little planning ahead will make your holidays much more peaceful and enjoyable.
