Bored around the Holidays??

I know there are tons of things that you need to get done around the holidays. Party planning, picking up relatives from the airport, cooking, shopping, christmas lights, etc….

But we all need a little escape to get the full enjoyment out of all our hard work… Thats what its all about isn’t it? You have been working so hard so that the holidays are perfect. And they will be! They always are. I have gathered a few interesting things to do alone, with a special someone, or with the whole family. I hope it gives a little inspiration to those who feel a bit overwhelmed around this time.
