My first year of being 30+ is quickly approaching. Most would probably treat themselves to a spa day, a decadent meal or a weekend getaway. And not going to lie to you, that would typically be my approach, too.

NOT Wishing for a White Christmas

I want to pass on one of my favorite family holiday traditions, albeit, it’s a rather new tradition. A few years back, my family decided we needed to reinvent our holidays.
