Get in the Christmas spirit already! By get in the spirit, I mean slow down and enjoy! This time of year always seems to pass by in a flash. Slow down and enjoy the little moments together with family and friends. Whether you enjoy making a simple meal with your family and friends, siting by the fireplace with some hot cocoa or decorating a gingerbread house. Whatever your traditions are, make sure to stop and enjoy these moments.
To help you put on the brakes, why not make your dinner or lunch gathering a potluck? If your mom makes the best sausage stuffing, ask her to bring that along. Your sibling makes the best to-die-for desserts? Ask them to bring along a dessert. You can serve up just one element of the dinner or lunch and the rest will fall into place when your guests arrive. How fantastic is that!
