We’re kicking off December with a hot cocoa in one hand and an umbrella in the other while holiday window shopping on¬†Alberta… and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
1) Holiday Hygge: Hygge, in a¬†simplest translation, is a super cozy feeling, which is perfect for the holidays. We found two articles that best describe it. One containing¬†DIY projects for the home or to make as gifts¬†–¬†also ideal if you’re trying to keep¬†your own or visiting kiddos busy during a rainy afternoon. Not feeling crafty? We understand; the¬†other article contains great hygge gift ideas¬†(BTW zero judgement if you gift yourself any of the items… like the blankets… or a wreath… or some candles…).
2) Holiday Happenings:¬†Expecting company this month and want to avoid cabin fever? We hear you loud and clear. We found a few calendars and activity guides¬†you may want to bookmark for future reference: Portland Monthly’s¬†Holiday Guide¬†&¬†Mt Hood Activity Guide; Travel Portland’s¬†December Event Calendar;¬†and Thrillist’s¬†Portland Holidays & Christmas Guide.
3) Holiday Spirits:¬†Our very own Chelsea McAllister has an incredible Tres Leches Eggnog recipe you’ll want serve at your holiday gathering.
Be sure to follow us here on the blog and on¬†Instagram¬†as we share a few of our favorite holiday activities and recipes throughout the month.
