Lander-Shafik Blogmas | It’s the most wonderful time of the year


It’s Blogmas! Well it’s our interpretation of Blogmas anyway.

I know many people like this time of year but we absolutely love it because just between Christmas and New year, 3 years ago, we started speaking online so it is a special time of year for us as it is the start of our journey together.

With tomorrow being the first day of December and the day we normally put a blog post up we thought we would take this opportunity to share with you all our favourite things at Christmas time leading up to the big day. Our traditions, anything we get to try and review and also the food (THE FOOD!!!!)

We will continue to put a blog post out every week on a Tuesday and Thursday but we are also doing Vlogmas so you may see some more posts up in the meantime.

For us we really enjoy this time of year as it just gives us a real opportunity to look back over the past 12 months and really recognise what we have accomplished.

Firstly – we got married this year! I can’t believe it’s been 6 months already!

We started our Vlog at the same time as getting married and the blog 4 months ago.

We have been doing lots of home improvements and we have been really trying to get the best out of our lovely little home.

Rupert’s ear infection issues finally got sorted and we are looking forward to a new addition to our family at the end of the year too when we get a new niece.

This definitely means more than gifts to us, we don’t really buy much for each other at Christmas as it’s definitely about the food, family, festive films and fun around this time.

Do you enjoy this time of year? Do you like to reflect on the past year?  Are you excited for the festive period?

    Christmas is amazing! It does slightly scare me, though, because it’s like “damn, again? Another year over?” But then there’s Christmas chocolates and TV specials and it’s okay again 🙂

    I love Christmas a little bit more every year, I definitely appreciate it more as I’m getting older. I definitely agree on it being more about family, food and festivities rather than gifts 🙂
    Oh and a big congratulations for your 6 month anniversary! x
