Hi there, friends!💗 I thought I’d pop in here for a HOLIDAY edition, along with my newest fave pic of myself (if there is such a thing!😂). My friend JE @ took this picture in November, and I’m super happy with it...she kicks butt at photography.💪🏼📸
That said, here are some facts about me, related to the holiday season...
1️⃣Gift-giving is my love language so Christmas is absolutely my favorite! Of course, I enjoy receiving gifts, but most of all, I love giving them. I keep track of special things all year long, so I can give just the perfect gifts to my loved ones.
2️⃣My favorite holiday tradition is making pierogis from scratch with my kids. My mom’s side of the family is Polish, and we love carrying on the family traditions.
3️⃣As many of you know, my husband is from Peru, so we also incorporate many of his customs as well.🇵🇪 He grew up celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve, almost like New Year’s, so we do the same! My kids stay up until midnight, and we celebrate together.🙌🏼
4️⃣As popular as peppermint is this time of year, mint is one of my least favorite things ever. Give me all the baked goods...gingerbread, Russsian tea cakes, fudge, toffee...just leave out the peppermint.😂
5️⃣This is the first year of my life having a fake Christmas tree.🎄 Growing up in Alaska, we always had a real one, and I love pine. I’m definitely missing the smell and will be buying some natural greenery, but it sure is nice not having to vacuum up pine needles every day when the dog runs around!🐶👌🏼
How about you? What’s a holiday fact you can share about yourself?!?👇🏼 I’d sure love to know!😘
