2020’s been R O U G H to say the least, so this year I’m participating in my own little version of “25 days of Christmas” to make the entire month of December special. Because, why not? This year could seriously use extra fun and delight!

Thanks to my right-hand, Allie (who does so much work for me behind the scenes!), for many of these ideas. Feel free to steal some or all of these ideas for yourself

December 2: Start a Puzzle
December 3: Watch “The Holiday”
December 4: Order Dinner from a Local Restaurant
