I love this time of year. Not only the festivities, but the magic that surrounds the month of December. Combine that with the kindness that people show towards one another and it’s pure joy.

David and I are starting our holiday off at the Hershey Hotel in Pennsylvania, a tradition we started last year and plan to continue each year. If you’ve never been I highly recommend it! First of all, everything is chocolate. Secondly, everything is chocolate.

Hershey PA

Like our experience staying at the Biltmore in Asheville a few weeks ago (a home built by George Vanderbilt), the food at Hershey is all farm to table. Mr. Hershey and Mr. Vanderbilt were actually good friends and both believed that food should be sustainable and wholesome. They joined in on the farm-to-table movement before it was cool. <wink>

After that we head to New York to visit David’s parents, another tradition we’ve celebrated the last four years together. While I take the rest of the year off to bask in joy and family, without guilt, I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season filled with love, laughter and joy.

happy holidays

And remember to rest up because January 1 marks our 2016 Feng Shui clutter detox kickoff! If you haven’t signed up yet you can do that here.
