Holiday Survival Guide 2014

Hello Fall! Fall has always been one of my favorite times of the year. It marks the beginning of the fun and festive holiday season!
Up north, I always loved when the weather got cooler and the leaves started to change and reveal their beautiful fall colors.
Now living in the south, means I have to step it up to really create the “fall” experience. Yesterday, the kids and I just started decorating the house. I love to see their excited little faces pulling out all of the decorations. My oldest recalls memories from the past associated with each decoration as my youngest listens intently. I love it and they make everything so much more special.

However, this time of year also can get very stressful! The next three months can be a whirlwind of parties, events, visitors, baking, cooking, traveling and at some point we should probably clean and prep our homes for all of these activities! Therefore, I’m so excited to be able to bring you the holiday survival guide for 2014! A group of 6 bloggers will be giving you tips and tricks to make this holiday season the best yet!

How do you keep it all straight? How do you get it all done? And how do you do it without sucking the joy and fun out of the season?

Guess what? We’ve got you covered! We’re going to get you decluttered, organized, cleaned, decorated, and ready for all the holiday fun…without you needing to be committed to the looney bin before New Year’s.

    Oh, thank you thank you! I love this, because I always have the best intentions and then lose track of time and I never follow through. This is a great idea that I will definitely use with my family!

    Bookmarking this! I have always meant to join a linky party but never had the chance to do so. Will take a more thorough read through of all the blogs later. Got to rush off to work now. Thanks for sharing!

    Love the themed printables. Really which I had the time to join in, things are a little hectic right now for me to participate. But then again… this would be the perfect time.
