The Absolutely Stress-Free Way To Host a Cozy Holiday Brunch

The Absolutely Stress-Free Way To Host a Cozy Holiday Brunch

This post is sponsored by Bruegger’s Bagels, but all content is 100% my own.

There’s no doubt that everybody is extremely busy this time of year! Between all the parties, school events, and holiday traditions, my family doesn’t get a moment of rest. There isn’t even any time left over to host our own Christmas party. We have to get creative if we want to see our loved ones, so we choose to host a simple holiday brunch for a few of our favorite people!

Teach Your Kids To Give Back This Holiday Season & Support Tackle Kids Cancer

Teach your kids to give back this holiday season

Christmas is the season of giving, but for many kids, the focus is on receiving. As parents, my husband and I work hard to teach our own four children that it's so much more special to give than receive, and that it's especially important to give back during the holiday season. We don't want to raise selfish, ungrateful children, so teaching them the importance of giving back while they are young is essential!

The Start of the Holiday Season

The Lucky Few

Like most families, the excitement about the upcoming holiday season starts to kick in for us in October, but we don't consider it the true holiday season until Thanksgiving! The anticipation builds for 3 months, and no matter how much we try to slow down to enjoy each moment, it seems to go faster with each passing year. And even though it goes far too quickly for my liking, it's still my favorite time of year!

How To Live In The Now With Your Spouse AND Save For Your Future

Date Night

My husband and I don't get out much for date night! With four children to raise, including one who has special needs, there's never enough time, and we can always think of so many ways that the money could be better spent. Date nights only occur 4-5 times a year for us, and truthfully, that's not ideal. We NEED to be able to briefly escape from our children to reconnect as a married couple more often. Being able to live in the now is every bit as important as saving for our future!
