Today’s ABD Styled is a little different. When Illume Candles sent over a whole box of their holiday goodness and asked me if I would show you some of my holiday traditions… I said Y-E-S! So today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite traditions: Christmas Card Stuffing!! Growing up this was always such a BIG deal in my house. My mom would make hot cocoa, light all of our Christmas candles, and we would all sit around the kitchen table while listening to holiday music as we signed, sealed, and stamped our cards. So of course, this tradition has stuck with me and every year I make a big fuss out of stuffing my cards! Although, I would be totally lying to you if I told you I actually looked like this while stuffing my cards, ha! Don’t get me wrong, I was sitting in that same chair, sipping that same champagne, but I think I was wearing red polka-dotted pajamas and fuzzy slippers! But in my head I was totally wearing a tutu, as one should always be doing!
But, let’s be honest, doesn’t this scene just look magical?! I suggest you run out and pick up this Illume candle, champagne, hot cocoa, macaroons and call all your girlfriends over ASAP!
This little heavenly Christmas scene can happen for you too!
