Happy holidays! In this week leading up to Christmas, I’ve actually gotten myself together surprisingly well. I packed up a big box full of gifts and sent it to my parent’s house, since we’ll be celebrating Christmas in Hong Kong this year. That was my biggest stress, to get the gifts there before Christmas Day. So fingers crossed all works out as planned!
I’ve got most of my fiance’s gifts already. All I need to do is wrap them and do some last minute shopping for his family. Besides that, it’s relatively smooth sailing from here on out! I may even have time for one of these 5 fun holiday DIYs. Who’s with me?
I miss home so much now that it’s getting closer to the holidays. With Halloween right around the corner, it’s only a matter of time before it’s Thanksgiving and then Christmas. Growing up as a kid back home in Alpharetta, Georgia, my mom would always deck out our house with decorations for each holiday. Not just that, but our whole suburb would really get into the holiday spirit. Speaking of nostalgia, when I was back home in August I took a trip to our local farmers’ market. I really miss that ‘local’ feeling of a small, tightly knit community.
On our visit to my grandparents in the Blue Ridge mountains, my mom and I stopped by Osage Farms to grab fresh fruit and vegetables before heading home. Nestled in the heart of the mountains, Osage Farms is a family-owned farm selling seasonal, locally grown produce every day from May through October. It was fun to go on a Saturday because the market was busy and bustling with everyone stocking up on groceries for the week!
