One of my favorite things about the holidays is curling up by the Christmas tree, sipping on a piping hot cup of coffee. There is something very relaxing about looking into the glowing lights and gazing at all of the handmade ornaments that hang on our tree.

It’s the first week of December! By no means is this last minute, and it irks me that stores try to get me all stressed out that I don’t have my shopping done yet.
