The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, the holiday season is officially upon us!

Holiday Giving

The Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign is my favorite way to give during the holiday season and is very near and dear to my heart. Chances are, you already know what I am talking about and immediately pictured the iconic red kettle and heard the sweet sound of the silver bells ringing. This is something that brings joy to my heart and is one of the things that I miss the most about living abroad during the holidays. Thankfully, I partnered with The Salvation Army and created my own virtual red kettle, which you can donate to here and I would be forever grateful. Daveo, this one is for you.

Holiday Cheer

Emily Ley’s printable Random Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar is my favorite way to spread holiday cheer throughout your own corner of the world! It begins December 1st and has 25 Random Acts of Kindness for you to do with and for your loved ones.

Holiday Movies

I am a sucker for a feel-good holiday romance. I love all things Hallmark and Lifetime, especially anything with Candace Cameron Bure. So light a yummy candle and get cozy, here are a few of my favorites: The Holiday, A Christmas Detour, Christmas at Cartwright’s, Mrs. Miracle and Hitched For The Holidays.

Holiday Books

There is nothing I love more than curling up by a fire, sipping hot chocolate and getting lost in a holiday book. My go-to favorites are The 12 Days of Christmas and The Perfect Christmas by Debbie Macomber,  A Bramble House Christmas by CJ Carmichael, and How I Came To Sparkle Again by Kayla McLaren.

Holiday Playlists

There are two types of people in the world, those that start playing Christmas music November 1st and those that get upset about the first time. Can you guess which one I am? My all-time favorite holiday albums are N*SYNC’s Home for the Holidays, Rend Collective’s Campfire Christmas, and Michael Buble Christmas. Recently, I have been loving this Christmas is Coming Spotify playlist.

Cheers to the most wonderful time of the year, friends!
