Friday Favorites: 12/26/14 – Christmas

I am sitting down to write this post a few days before Christmas because I know I will be too busy spending time with family on Christmas Day to type up this post. . .but I hope that you had a great Christmas day and are able to continue enjoying the holiday today as well. And if you are at work. . . you’re almost there, it’s Friday!! Smile

I thought for my favorites this week, I would share some of my favorite things about Christmas time this year. The things that made me smile during the holiday season and that make this time of year so special.
