#HappierHolidaysSweeps Creating Holiday Family Memories Through Travel, Food, and Crafting

Sharing is caring!

I am partnering with an amazing hotel chain today to tell you how to have a happier holiday through their #HappierHolidaysSweeps, sponsored by Country Inns & Suites. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

My family is known for doing wild and crazy things during the holidays. Our motto is — “As long as we are together, we don't care what we are doing”. That holds true for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day — whatever time of the year rolls around, we do our best at creating holiday family memories.

How to Create Holiday Family Memories

This holiday season I’m partnering with Country Inns & Suites by Carlson to bring a Happier Holidays Sweepstakes to you and your family. How would you like to win a wonderful package perfect for getting away for the holidays?

Grand Prize — Four (4) free nights at a Country Inns & Suites location, and a $300 gift card. There will be 25 Grand Prize Winners for the entire program period.

This is how my family and I celebrate the holidays — and be sure to check out the bottom of the post for the details to this amazing contest!

Creating holiday family memories through travel

There are so many things that we love to do. For me and my husband, we use the holidays as a time to get away with each other and reconnect. In fact, we just recently got back from an amazing fun trip where we got to spend some quality time together.

Travel is definitely one way that we create wonderful family memories. We have been to Florida, Missouri, Tennessee, Illinois, Kentucky, and are hoping to add Texas to our list this coming year.

Creating holiday family memories through baking

My daughter and I love to bake together for the holidays. From October to the end of December, you will always find us in the kitchen cooking up new creations to share with my readers here and to pass out to our friends and families as homemade gifts.

Creating holiday family memories through crafting

My friends and I love to get together all the time to craft. Last year, we made snowmen ornaments for our Christmas trees, but this year, I sat one afternoon and made some adorable candle holders out of some wine glasses I picked up at the local Goodwill store. I think I paid like $1.00 for the pair and they turned out super cute!

Crafting to create holiday family memories

I'll be sharing my tutorial for these candle holders later this week. They were so easy to make and really gave me some time to enjoy the holiday season.

However you and your family celebrate the holidays, Country Inns & Suites wants to make your holiday travel is easier with a chance at their #HappierHolidaysSweeps hotel stay for (4) nights.
