mid-week round-up

We’re headed out on our first of two holiday road trips later this week, and I’m super excited to bundle up in the car and head out. (Hope Chet is down to listen to Christmas music and true crime podcasts the whole way!) We’re seeing family, and I’m looking forward to eating some favorite foods and stopping by for a stroll through a holiday lights display. Also, I hope you’ll check out this year’s holiday gift guides; I always love putting them together for you guys. Hope you have a great rest of your week, and here are some links for your Wednesday enjoyment…
