holiday challenge #2: getting into the spirit


Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s time for the next two items in this year’s holiday challenge. Let’s start with a recap of last week. The challenges were to read a holiday themed book and buy a festive holiday candle. I started reading “Seven Days of Us” by Francesca Hornak and also got "One Day in December“ by Josie Silver from Book of the Month. As for the candles, I got my second Cedar & Balsam candle this year from Trader Joe’s as well as the orange clove candle from Mrs. Meyers that’s so good! I love it because it smells festive, but also really clean and fresh at the same time.

Okay! On to this week’s challenges.
