Given some serious thought, the idea of planning, cooking, cleaning, and hosting a holiday meal at home might sound a tad exhausting. Of course, it’s wonderful to be surrounded by friends and family during the holidays, but that doesn’t mean that you have to cook every single year. This could be your year off, because, believe it or not, there are alternatives!
Why do we adore the holiday season so much? For most of us, it’s because of love. Sure, we can love one another and share in the joy of relationships all year round, but during the holiday season, we get a chance to prioritize it. Families make commitments to see each other, get-togethers are arranged, and a great effort is put forth to all be together. It is precisely that celebration of love, family, and commitment that sets the tone for a season of proposals!
With an ever-increasing emphasis placed on fitness and wellness, the option to continue one’s workout regimen while on vacation is paramount! Wellness-minded vacationers should take a discerning eye to the website of potential hotels to see what the fitness options are, before booking.
The holidays are nearly upon us and life is filled with glittering decorations, endless parties, and the tantalizing smell of holiday cooking. Or is it? Is the art of cooking fading into the past as it becomes ever-easier and convenient to pop into the grocery store or the local bakery? We hope not, but time is always of the essence in our fast-paced society.
Getting cozy with your friends and family is what the holiday season is all about. Cold weather is truly just an excuse to spend more time inside chatting, dining, and laughing! Oh, and let’s not forget – drinking!
Spring, summer, and early fall usually get all the attention when it comes to having a wedding, but what about winter? Out of all four months, winter is easily the most overlooked season to say “I Do,” but it shouldn’t be! Many of the major wedding planning and execution woes can be easily avoided by having a winter wedding, yet most couples-to-be don’t realize it!
Few other months out of the year set the stage for paranormal activity and interests quite like October. If ghost stories, haunted buildings, and an overall spooky vibe pique your interest, then it might be time to visit Vermont.
