I’ve taken a long break from blogging but things have been crazy lately. Since my last post, I’ve gotten used to living at home again and settled into my first “real world” job. I was so excited to throw the party for my mom that I wrote about in August, but with sending one brother off to college and taking the other brother on college visits, there never seemed to be time.
Luckily I have a new party to plan. Ever since I was little, my family has hosted a party on Christmas Eve. I grew up with these families and now that we are older, all the kids are off living in different cities, at different colleges, and this is one of the few times of the year that we get to see each other- making it a most festive occasion. Since my pinterest boards went unused this summer, I am going pin-crazy for Christmas. I’ll be testing some of the recipes here before Christmas, and then blogging about the party as a whole afterwards.
In more holiday excitement, a few months back I entered a contest on instagram and won! On December 28th I will be headed to sunny Palm Beach for the Red Cross Beach Bash courtesy of Lilly Pulitzer! I can’t wait to share that experience on here with lots of pictures and DIYs so you can have a taste of the party even if you aren’t in sunny Florida.
That’s all the winter madness that is on my plate for now! Plenty of recipes and crafts to come!
