I’m sure we’ve all heard the phrase “it’s better to give than to receive.” For as long as I can remember, my family baked special treats during the holidays to give to our neighbors and friends. When Scott and I got married, we wanted our family to carry on that tradition. This year we decided to make Hershey’s Peanut Butter Blossoms and Rice Krispies Treats!

Things have been a little crazy this year and I really enjoyed the one-on-one time I got to spend with my daughter as we prepared these special treats together. These are the kinds of memories I cherish.

While I was in Flagstaff, I found these adorable recycled giving bags that really went with our theme of giving back this year. As I researched the company that sells these bags I learned that it was started by entrepreneur, Patti Hughes. I loved learning about her creative story and how she built this amazing company called Natural Life. I decided to purchase some of the bags to put my special treats in! I am hopeful that these bags will be refilled and circulated throughout our community to spread some cheer, not only at Christmas time but all year long!
