Wow, can you believe the Holiday Season for 2019 is among us?
The hustle is on and the bustle is bustlin’!
Question: How do we get through another season of festivities, shopping, feasting, sipping, gift wrapping, decorating, cleaning, spending and memory-making all in one piece?
Answer: We have absolutely no idea!
We all love to entertain and be entertained, give and receive gifts and cook and feast. Making it all happen and appear to be effortless, on time and stress-free is the challenge. Where do we cut corners with time and money without making it appear that we obviously cut corners with time or money!?
We aren’t Pinterest Maidens but, we do appreciate all of the terrific ideas that can be found on this terrific platform. The problem is – how do you decide what to choose with so many options? It can be so overwhelming…
Do we need to feel guilty if we order our roasted turkey from the market and do not roast in our own kitchens? Is time saved in the kitchen more valuable than a homemade feast?
Which do you prefer, this or that…
- Homemade pies vs bakery goodies
- Instant vs real potatoes
- Bag of bows vs hand tied ribbon
- Gift bags vs wrapped boxes
- Silver & glass vs paper & plastic
- Gifts vs experiences
- Cash vs gift cards
- Clear lights vs multi-color
