Although you may still be digesting Thanksgiving, it’s December which means we need to turn our turkey filled heads towards the most wonderful time of the year. Don’t worry, we won’t bog you down with to-do and gift lists to complete. Instead, we’ve got a few ideas to make this season brighter and lighter!

Take Your ‘Little Women’ and Men To The Theater 

Looking for a wholesome movie for the whole family to enjoy this month? The newest film version of Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women hits theaters Christmas day and with its rockstar cast, it’s generating a lot of buzz. Director Greta Gerwig teams up with her Lady Bird pals Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet in film, alongside Emma Watson (Harry Potter series) and Meryl Streep to give audiences an updated, modernized, and witty version of this 19th-century epic that puts women and their minds at the top of the list.

Holiday Recipes From Our Single Mom Community

Last December, we asked our blog contributors to send in their favorite holiday recipes and our divorce contributor Dena Landon tried them all out with her sous chef/son. There was holiday home potpourri to make your house smell like a holiday wonderland, candy cane cookies, peanut butter fluff fudge, corn casserole, the ultimate brussle sprouts, fantasy fudge, and cranberry brie crostini. Make sure to check out the post when thinking about your holiday menu or looking for fun kitchen adventures to take with kids.

Thinking about how to make the holiday season a little less wasteful and a little more earth-friendly. There are lots of options out there to help you out.

And for the real earth lovers out there, consider using natural or recycled wrapping paper for your gifts.

Investing In A Good Resolution

Got a New Years’ resolution in mind for 2020? Thinking about how you can reach those financial goals you’ve been aiming towards?
