Friends, can you believe that Christmas is less than a week away?! Growing up, a family tradition for us was to drive around on December 23rd and see all the beautiful Christmas lights in Spokane. We had to drive around aimlessly, because we didn't have a handy list like this! Grab some hot cocoa and your family and go on a beautiful drive before Christmas, maybe the magic of the holidays will bring some snow flurries. ♥
