Holiday Cheer At Whole Foods

This post is sponsored by Whole Foods. Although I received compensation to share this information with readers, all thoughts are my own. 

Living in South Florida during the winter months is tough when you were born and raised in New Jersey. For one, the weather isn’t the same.

No matter how you try and decorate your home, the days never really feel quite festive. Although I no longer get the winter blues, I do feel down about not having our traditional December 24th family meal or seeing my mom running around our home with incense because she needs to bless the house for the upcoming year.

Not all hope was lost when we moved. In fact, moving away from my family has allowed me to do something different during the holiday season — to create our own family traditions.

Before the beginning of the new year, I promised the boys we’d dedicate more time doing fun things together. Now that our boys are more independent, I can worry less when we go out.

When I heard about what Whole Foods was doing throughout the month of December, I knew I wanted to bring the boys along to experience some holiday cheer.

From making gingerbread houses to tasting new items for the holiday, there’s a little something for those of you looking to have some fun. I’ve shared the schedule to the Whole Foods location in Pembroke Pines in case any of my local readers were interested in stopping by this month:

  1. Holiday cheer at a great store, we love Whole Foods! What a wonderful idea to do a gingerbread house workshop! My son would love that!

  2. If I had ZERO self restraint…. I would basically just bring a sleeping bag and LIVE at Whole Foods. LIVE THERE! haha! In the freezer section, because I like being cold when I sleep, so I can snuggle up!

  3. I love saving on shopping especially during the holidays because there’s too much expenses to think of as it is! I think it’s great that Whole Foods is offering these deals!

  4. It’s really good for my christmas tree decorate i hope i can get that things before christmas. I will decorate my christmas tree beautifully.
