Please welcome Avery Beck!
1. What is your favorite thing about the colder weather?
I wish I had colder weather! In my part of the country, it still reaches 80
degrees in November. Sigh. But when it does dip into the 50s or so, my
favorite things are the significantly reduced electricity bill and the cozy
sweats I get to wear at night. I also like that I don’t have to go running
at 6:30 in the morning, because it’s still nice and cool at 9 am.
2. What kind of books do you like to curl up with on a cold day?
The same books I always like to read–a hot romance or interesting
nonfiction that will teach me something new. The other day, I saw a
magazine dedicated to Christmas cookies…that might be good this time of
3. What is your favorite holiday food?
How much time do we have? I love holiday food! Gingerbread lattes.
Festively shaped sugar cookies topped with icing and sprinkles. My dad’s
tuna dip (and I don’t even like tuna…).
4. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Gathering the whole family together in one room for the gift exchange and
getting lost in a cloud of opened gifts, unopened gifts, and ripped-up
paper (and trying to find my drink amidst the mess). I like to play Santa,
but I usually have to fight my teenage niece for the part.
5. Be honest, how much do you decorate for the holidays?
Right now, I just do the living room, but I do get crazy there–tree with
all the trimmings, lighted garland around the doorways, wreath, stockings,
you name it. Oh, and a few lights outside too. I plan to move soon, and if
the budget allows, I’d love to shop for more decor and put a little
Christmas in each room at the new place. 🙂
