It’s officially the holiday season, which is my favorite time of the year! Christmas is special to our family as we are building new traditions with our little boys and enjoying the celebration of our Lord Jesus. In all transparency, we are trying to go against the norm and enjoy this month at a slower pace, without all the chaos that “gift-giving” can bring. We do however, believe it is a blessing to give, and also a huge blessing to receive.
So, while we want to focus our attention on the meaning of Christmas, I also know that gift-giving can be a fun and great way to love on others. This is where I love to release my favorite things each year that are focused on health, fitness and living a more toxin-free lifestyle!
I believe that helping give others useful tools to better their health is overall helping someone else live a better life… so bring on the helpful ideas this Christmas season of 2018!
