The Guilt of Christmas Present Overload

In early September, I started preparing Jayden’s wishlist to ensure that his presents were bought and wrapped in advance to avoid the hectic last minute. So I made a list.

Spending the Holidays With a House Full of Family

Earlier this month I shared my favorite holiday tradition. And that’s spending Christmas day with a house full of my mother’s side of the family.

This is the way I shop for coats.
