Yes, it’s a bit early to be wishing you a Merry Christmas, but I’ve decided to take the month of December off from blogging this year. I am going to enjoy my family and savor the preparation for Christmas this year and I hope you can do the same!

If you are looking for some ideas for Advent or Christmas, check out some of my favorite holiday posts.

Also, if you are looking to simplify and have a calmer Christmas season, my two go-to books are:

The Advent Christmas Planner by Laci @ Catholic Icing.

And by go-to I mean that I read them both every. single. year. No lie.

Christmas Books

And finally, no holiday is complete without a basket full of books.
