Edit Your Life Episode 107: Simple Holiday Rituals
Often, the simplest holiday rituals are the ones we love the most. In Episode 107 of Edit Your Life, Asha and I encourage you to take the pressure off creating the picture-perfect holiday season by embracing simple rituals YOUR family enjoys. We share 8 easy rituals -- from neighborhood light walks to local craft fairs to building LEGO sets -- in the hopes of inspiring your own low-key holiday fun.
Note: We’re taking a two-week holiday break and will be back with a new episode on January 11, 2018. Happy holidays, friends!
