My last roundup of 2018 and in fact my last round up ever. You can learn more about that in my 2019 New Years Resolutions post happening later in the month (or maybe even in February if I’m being honest).
I’ll also be honest that not too much happened in December. I was still recuperating from Iceland and getting ready for the Holidays. I’ll be honest, this is the second year in a row that I’ve traveled near the holidays and I might not do it again. It’s surprisingly really hard to get back into the swing of things.
December is always really hectic, especially for my birthday who helps his family sell Christmas trees. I go usually for a weekend and (only kind of help out) but it’s really awesome to see the family come together every year, for decades — it’s a tradition and the area really does love it.
Luckily I had the week of Christmas off from work to help me relax from everything. I did a lot of baking in December, I’m hoping next year I can share some recipes related to my holiday baking — including truffles from my Harry Potter Cookbook. But if you can’t wait, here’s some recipes on peanut butter cookies that are amazing and vegan style peanut butter cups (can you get the fact that I really like peanut butter?).
We don’t have much going on in the month of January, we already celebrated the holidays with both our families, so this is going to be a lot of relaxing and reading — which is great since my books read in December was pretty sad.
