Can you believe the official countdown to Christmas is on? The first week of December has flown by and it’s time to get down to business. These jingle bells won’t jingle themselves, friends! All of the time we spend preparing and planning now will surely pay off once we get to spread some holiday cheer to our friends and family. I’ve always truly loved making holiday goodies to gift to everyone from co-workers to neighbors. It’s been awhile since I’ve done this and now that I don’t work in an office environment, it’s going to take a little extra effort to spread the cheer, but I’m excited to bring back this fun tradition!
