Are y’all counting down with us? There are only five days left until V5 arrives and our tails are practically wagging!
Among the big days we’re counting down to, the holidays top our list, too. After all, Thanksgiving is only a couple of weeks away, and that means we can officially begin decorating and celebrating! (Right, Em?)
One of our favorite parts of the season is organizing and holding our annual events. We’re really excited to get the ball rolling on our fourth annual ornament swap and are already brainstorming some crafty ideas! We had an amazing swap last year (take a look at our recap here) and would love for y’all to participate! Take a look at the directions below. Whether you intend to hand make the ornaments you send out or buy some adorable ones, just make sure they’re as Southern as possible and email Emily by Monday, November 19!
Last year, we were super excited to hold our very first Gingerbread Barn Building Competition. Dozens of our wonderful readers (donning Christmas aprons, no less), gathered with us at the Carolina Inn to frost, assemble, decorate (and eat) the best gingerbread barn below the Mason-Dixon. This year, we’re determined to put our improved frosting skills to the test. Join us, won’t you? All you have to bring is your game face. RSVP by emailing me with “Gingerbread Barn Building” in the subject line.
I’m really excited for the coming weeks and getting the chance to meet more of you! We’ll be keeping you updated on these events as the countdown to the holidays commences, so keep an eye open for them!
