With Christmas around the corner, our family is enjoying many nights cuddled up on the sofa, watching Christmas movies together. There are so many amazing options that it's almost hard to choose a favorite. We love to snack on some popcorn and curl up with each selection.
If you ask me, winter is one of the best seasons for staying home and cooking up a delicious treat for your family.

I remember the first time I ever tasted a pull-apart bread…mmm. Warm, chewy bread is so satisfying! Imagine my delight when I discovered this variety of pull-apart flavor options: Italian, Cheesy, Pizza, Buffalo Chicken, and Spinach Feta Garlic. How delicious do these sound: Garlic Parmesan Pull-Apart Bread, Jalapeño Popper, Savoury Cheese and Garlic Olive Oil, and Herb and Cheese Pull-Apart Bread with Sun-Dried Tomatoes? There are also delicious, sweet pull-apart choices like Cinnamon Sugar Sweet Bread, Caramelized Cranberry and Brie, Pumpkin Spice with Butter Rum Glaze, Breakfast Pull-Apart Bread, Blueberry Muffin, and Easy Strawberry Pull-Apart Bread. Bet you can’t eat just one (I can’t)!
The holidays are such a special time of year. Since Sam is an only child, it's always been important to me to make the most of each season and to capture those memories. During the holidays, this is especially true. I covet our time together as a family and adore instilling traditions into Sam. Now that he's five, he can participate even more -- making it that much more fun for all of us!

I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is already right around the corner -- this week in fact! While I love entertaining and all the memories that come with it, preparing for guests can be tiring. I want to enjoy my time with friends and family during the holidays -- not dread them because of prep. Having a few easy prep meals during the holiday allows for a bit of relaxing down time. That can make a big difference in how much I enjoy the week.

My days usually feel like something of a marathon -- they are long, intense and involve me running from activity to activity. After starting our day at home, there is Sam's school drop off, then work for me. After school pick up, Sam has several activities each week including sports, speech therapy and other lessons. Of course, this means I'm playing chauffeur and then spending time standing and waiting. Evenings home involve dinner, bath time and bed time. After Sam's in bed, I finally am able to put my feet up. Relief! Little things like a pedicure go a long way in providing me relaxation and stress relief.
