Ask anyone in my family what cookie they have to have during the holidays, and every one of them will answer peanut butter kiss cookies. Some of you may know them as peanut blossoms, but we’ve always called them peanut butter kiss cookies in our family. Forget the sugar cookies and gingerbread, we want some peanut butter and chocolate at our holiday parties! Okay, to be honest, I want peanut butter and chocolate year-round.

One easy way to make your gifts look more exciting is to add Christmas ornaments on them. What is great about this, is that you are giving two gifts in one! What is even better? You don’t have to limit yourself to using them only during the holidays. Especially if you can find a good assortment of ornaments.

Every day, we encounter stressful situations and things that exhaust us physically. The holidays are no exception. In fact, they can be even more stressful, especially for newlyweds. You have so many things to deal with: Where will you spend the holidays? Should you host a party for friends and family? Is your new house big enough to hold a party?

In August, my husband and I sold our house and moved in with my parents until we find a new house. It was tough leaving the first home we purchased together, but we knew it was the right move.
