For #MyLuckyHoliday, we’ve teamed up with some of our favorite influencers to talk all things merry and bright: what makes the holidays so special and their personal picks from our gift guide. Read on to hear more from blogger, Steffy.
How are you spending the holidays this year?
Every holiday season I have a few traditions outside of decorating our own home. I always help my aunt who lives around the corner from me decorate her Christmas village, and we also decorate a gingerbread house. My husband, son, and I also spend Christmas Eve at my aunt and uncle’s home—it’s one of my favorite nights of the year! We enjoy opening presents on Christmas Day with just the three of us, and then we usually head home the next day to Florida for the New Year!
What do you love most about this season?
I love how it’s my busiest season for work, but then closer to Christmas, everything slows down and I get to reconnect with my family, share meals, and enjoy each other’s company.
Do you have any personal holiday traditions?
One of my personal traditions is baking and decorating gingerbread cookies.
Any tips for avoiding stress?
I usually get stressed during this season, but I am sure most of us do. The gym is always a great stress reliever for me.
Do you have a favorite dish that you look forward to preparing and or enjoying?
I always look forward to my aunt’s Christmas dinner!
Tell us about one of your fondest holiday memories?
One of my favorite holiday memories was the first Christmas after my son was born: he was only a few weeks old, and my husband and I dressed in santa pajamas all day to match him. Then we ate brunch at our local diner all dressed up!
Let’s talk music! What’s your go-to album of choice and why?
A Very She & Him Christmas!
Describe your holiday décor style.
Lots of plaid and pops of red, but slightly understated!
Tell us something about 2018 that made you feel lucky?
I was able to work for myself for the entire year. It was my first full year as a freelancer, and for that I am eternally grateful.
Any new year resolutions for 2019?
Take more time to step away from work and create better work/life boundaries!
