Kes & I love entertaining over the holidays. Whether it’s elaborate family dinners or quick pop ins to deliver presents, the best part of this time of year is getting to spend time with friends and family. Often though, holiday entertaining is so focused on all things Christmas that by the time New Year’s Eve […]
