It’s heeeeere!!! As of today, Christmas is LESS than a month away. Say what?!
We’ve been spending this awesome time of year with our friends and family getting ready to celebrate on the 25th! (And 24th.. and probably for a week or so after that. Cause’ we’re Italian and that’s what we do.)
I’ve spent all of my free time in the past few weeks shopping. I’m still not done buying gifts but oh well. (Are you in the same situation? .. Because we have a guide for that.. just sayin’)
Christmas cookie baking has totally commenced, and I’m so excited about it. I have some super awesome blogging friends who just so happen to have created some of the best healthy holiday recipes I’ve ever seen! They were nice enough to let me share them here. Not only do these recipes look outstanding.. there’s something for everyone here. Got a cousin who’s gluten free? You’re covered. Aunt who’s vegan? No worries. Paleo brother-in-law? Rest assured. Obsessed with pumpkin, love peppermint, swear by gingerbread, go crazy for sugar cookies, or live for chocolate? WE’VE GOT EM’ ALL!
