The holiday seasons always give me a wonderful,


warm, tingling feeling inside of my body. There is just
something about the cool air that lets me know that its time
to reflect on the year and to get ready to see the people I
love most family. Theres just so much one can be thankful
for during the holidays: spending time with family, sharing
enjoying amazing meals together, decorating the tree,
sharing memories from past Christmases, and showing love
and compassion to everyone. I couldnt imagine spending
each Christmas any other way.
I love sharing my joy and passion for Christmas with
others. In this months newsletter, you will find ways to
revamp your traditional Christmas and a new recipe that your
family is sure to enjoy this season. We also had the special
pleasure to interview a special couple that is celebrating their
anniversary this Christmas. Enjoy.

10 New Things to do this Christmas season ( A remix to your holiday traditions)


1. Christmas tree- Remember that old fake tree you have in your garage or storage? How about
leaving it there and try an actual real Christmas tree! The pine needles will bring a warm,
comforting smell to your room and the essence of decorating a real tree will be your family
closer together.

2. Store bought ornaments- Store bought ornaments are so last season! How about you gather
around that Christmas tree you bought and create handmade ornaments.
3. Turkey- Tired of baking turkey every year? Buy a turkey fryer and have the whole family
talking about how you not only can bake a delicious turkey, but you can fry one too!
4. Traditional Christmas foods- Speaking of fying turkey, every wonder what it was like to try
something completely different for Thanksgiving dinner? Here is your chance to try nontraditional foods such as barbeque, Chinese, or Italaian!
5. Cookies- have you ever considered that Santa is still trying to stick to his resolution of eating
healthier, even if its the end of the year?
6. Presents/Gifts- Are you in a pinch and cant by everyone theat gift they wanted? Stocking
stuffers are not only more cost sensitive, but it makes Christmas even more special.

the merrier! Try planning a family reunion this or next Christmas. It will be one that you or your

How did you both meet?

over to me and say that Dennis was interested in me. I did not care for
Dennis when I first saw him. He had huge eyes and was lanky! But
eventually he came up to me and introduced himself and asked if I was
hungry. We went to eat with my friend and weve been together ever since.
Why did you choose to get married on Christmas Eve?
At the time of our engagement, Dennis was only available during the
Christmas time. Our extended family was also busy with work and their kids
being in school would have made it difficult to have the wedding before the
holiday time. So Dennis and I looked into different Saturdays during
December and the only one that worked was Christmas Eve. It wasnt a
deliberate decision to get married at that time, it was just the only time
that worked for everyone.

the rest of my life with . We had grew so close over the years and were so
in love. I was marrying my true best friend. I was so in love, happy, elated.
We felt like we could conquer the world and no one could tell us anything.
