It’s advent season! Growing up, we used to have a classic fabric advent calendar in the shape of a Christmas tree on our pantry door. Every morning, my brother and I would run downstairs and we’d take turns pulling the small, fabric shapes out and sticking them up on the tree. The countdown until Christmas really built up the excitement and anticipation. I’ve put together this list of 5 amazing, DIY advent calendars that you can make for a special festive countdown!
Sorry for my absence! My computer screen broke last week (cue major freak out). So I had to take it to the Apple store. Thank goodness they covered the cost of the repair. But it meant they had to keep my computer for a week so they could replace the screen. Luckily, nothing else was wrong with my computer so I’m thanking my lucky stars. I feel so happy to have it back and to get back to work. Tbh, I felt so lost without it. Anyways, I’m excited to share this yummy holiday recipe for my vegan and gluten-free gingerbread men cookies, a Christmas favorite of mine.

I’ve always wanted to travel to Italy. In my mind, Italy represents romance, love, and passion thanks to my literary mind. I’ve dreamed of going there for years, so I decided to dedicate an entire post to admiring the beautiful landscapes, food, and culture that Italy has to offer. I’m hoping that in the next couple of years, my dream of visiting Italy will finally come true!
We got the best news ever yesterday! My boyfriend and I will officially be going home for the holidays this year. We’ll be staying at my parent’s house for Christmas in the suburbs of Atlanta, where all my family gathers every year to celebrate. My brother and his girlfriend will be there, along with my grandparents, my brother and sister-in-law, and my niece & nephew. I’m so overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness right now! This quote definitely got it right, autumn is full of the loveliest smiles.
Every month in the fall, there’s a holiday to celebrate. I think that’s why fall always seems to go by so incredibly fast! I literally blinked my eyes and already Halloween and our friends’ wedding in Thailand zoomed by in a flash. Now, I’ve got my mind set on Thanksgiving, brewing up comforting, vegan-friendly recipes that are great for sharing with friends and family. However, a Thanksgiving meal would not be complete without a festive table to eat at. So, I gathered up these lovely, colorful Thanksgiving table ideas that have really inspired me lately!
