A Christmas Date

One doesn't necessarily think of the holidays and squeezing in date nights. What with holiday socials, feasts, and family gatherings to attend. But Alan and I always try to make a little time for the two of us, the weather is conducive to snuggling after all!
1. Cozy up in must-have cashmere and turn up the Christmas tunes. This album is my fave!

2. Fill the house with the delicious smell of the holidays. I prefer these mulling spices. Don't forget to use them for hot toddies too!

3. Dig up some of your shared favorite cookie recipes, perhaps some festive and fun new cookie cutters too. I love the classic chocolate chip. Alan thinks all sugar tastes the same. Silly. Set aside a few for Santa.

4. Snuggle up on the couch for your favorite holiday movie. We like to watch Love Actually; it was our first date! And then perhaps a little of this ;)

psst. Feeling extra lovie? Check out this darling idea for the 12 Dates of Christmas!

Yes!! I make those mulling spices too! They make great hostess gifts this time of year. Thank you and Southern Living!
