I still feel like I’m easing into the year and we’re almost two full weeks in. These goals are set for all of 2017 and beyond though, so really, what’s a few days delay anyway? I eluded to my recently adopted simplified lifestyle here and will expand on that soon (I really want to properly sort my thoughts out for the post), but for now, I’ve narrowed down a few things I’ll be focusing on personally and in business this year!
Christmas time has always been a bit of a juggling act for us. In fact, out of our 9 years together, we have NEVER spent Christmas Day together. It’s tough combining families and traditions into just a couple of days, you know? Last year we tried to squeeze everything in and ended up spending our first December 25th as a married couple at separate dinners. We met up back at home late that night, I looked at Adam, and declared that this was not to happen again.
This year, not only are we finally establishing our own holiday traditions as a couple, but with the addition of Reggie, it really feels like the first Christmas as a little family. We picked out a night, as close to the 25th as possible, and gave ourselves the wonderful gift of a cozy night in!
I’m always looking for simple appetizer ideas to bring to Holiday parties, or whip up if people are coming over. We made these the last weekend and the entire prep, baking, and plating took probably 20 minutes total! These Tomatoes Bocconcini Bites and Stuffed Dates are quick and easy to make, fresh, and seriously delicious. I can’t even call really these recipes because they’re truly that effortless, but read on for more on how to make these delightful appetizers.
