We can happily say that after our not so great attempt at getting everything ticked off our Fall Bucket List, we have definitely redeemed ourselves with our December bucket list! Here are the things we managed to accomplish during this wonderful festive season! :)
You know how excited we get when it comes to visiting home. We miss little old Stockport terribly when we are away in America, so it's always lovely to come back to comfort and all the cozy familiarity that we love so much from the town we grew up in. Over the seven years that we have been away many things have remained the same, but there have also been some new additions to home that have made us eager to wake up bright and early and experience all Heaton Moor has to offer. Today we share with you how to enjoy Christmas on the Moor!

This is the first book by Erin Nicholas that I have read and I have to say it was such a fun read. It was a little more steamy than I had expected but I loved the characters and the setting of the story. Having comic con as the place where the characters meet and having our heroine be a complete geek, was a really cool concept, that was right up my alley!

Italian Christmas traditions. You see, it wouldn't really be our blog if we let Christmas go buy without jumping up and down and squealing with glee as we tell you all about our favourite Italian treats and all the yumminess we are going to get to dig into when we go home, now would it? Of course it wouldn't. For those of you who may be new to our blog, hello and thank you for stopping by, we are half Italian, on our Mum's side and therefore all things Italy hold a special place in our hearts. Reading through Paola's traditions made us smile so big, as many of the things she mentioned are traditions in our own household. In past years we have shared our love for Pandoro, talked about devouring Baci and just last year we whipped up an Italian Hot Chocolate for the first time. This year we wanted to experiment once again and try our hands at a simple, traditional Italian Cookie, so without further ado, we give you these delights...

As a book blogger I shouldn't really admit that I have moments where I feel I can't possibly explain just how much I loved a book, after all, it's the whole point of blogging about the book in the first place. I'm supposed to tell you all about it, in the hopes that you will be moved enough to pick up a copy for yourself.
CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS IN ITALY
Christmas preparation in Italy starts on the 8th of December, which is an important Catholic Festivity. Families usually take out boxes containing Christmas decorations and Crib scenes on that day and start decorating trees and houses. The operation may be completely done on that day or may last longer. What matters is to start creating the Christmas atmosphere.
Fall Bucket List review, we definitely need to step up our game this December. Luckily for us we absolutely adore the Christmas Season and therefore feel we have a slightly better chance at completing all tasks on our list.

Eeek Brides and Bouquets is the second installment in Rebecca Raisin's Christmas series and after finishing this one it's safe to say I am a firm member of the Cedarwood community. Reading book 2 is like jumping back into line with those friends that you know are going to be with you for life, even if you don't see them all the time. After a brief time away after reading book 1, I was right back into the swing of things, happily enjoying the change in the weather at Cedarwood and getting excited by the upcoming event at Cedarwood lodge.
