Holiday This & That

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend!! Mr. College made it home yesterday, only to promptly leave again for the lake! Something tells me he wanted a little time with old friends before the onslaught of family time, ha! The transition from complete independence to back under the parents’ roof is always a little tricky. Communication is definitely key!

We have fun holiday plans this weekend, but I’ve also got to get serious about the rest of my gift list! Not to mention the wrapping. What I wouldn’t do for a little elf about now, ha! Which would you rather have… someone to wrap all the gifts, or prep the food and house?

Today’s post is a hodge-podge of holiday fun and inspiration… and it’s a doozy! So grab your coffee or toddy (I won’t tell), and settle in for the festive.
