December Bucket List | 2018



Its day 5 of December and though I should've posted this a few days ago, truth is I'm in no rush this month to get things done.  I'm really just trying to be in the moment and embrace the last few weeks and days left in 2018.  Before we know it, the new year will be upon us.  So the month of December though there is plenty of fun things to do, we also tend to slow down a bit and soak it in.

I love when the weather changes and the cold (as cold as it can possibly be in Southern California) comes through because if there's one thing I love to do in the cooler months or Winter season is hibernate.  Yes, I love to just rest, slow down, be home and really take my time with it all.  Plus I love going to bed at 8 PM instead of 9 PM with the time change and the evenings getting darker sooner.

I love a good holiday dinner party or other but if I can just be home and be toasty in my jammies, I love it even more.

With that said.... this time of year is so delicate.  You have to be careful not to over schedule, over commit, and ultimately exhaust yourself to the point of not being able to enjoy the holiday season.  I’ve put together a list of fun things to do this month for our family and some just for myself.

Be sure to comment below and let me know what you guys always do to prepare for the holiday season or anything fun you have planned!

By the way, its not in any kind of order, but definitely on the things we'd like to get around to doing list.
