You're hosting Thanksgiving dinner, the turkey is still in the oven, your stress level is rising, and the doorbell just rang with the in-laws on the other side… EEK!!
Rediscover time together by gathering
around good food
You dream of the perfect holiday—
You’ve been on Pinterest, you’ve been on Instagram, you see your neighbor—
Imposter syndrome sets in, and you’re just trying to survive the holiday season.
You continue with the same annoyance – year after year.
Have you ever said these things to yourself?
- “I’d love to try something different this year, while keeping with traditions.”
- “Why do we have to do all the things in December…”
- “I want JoJo and Chipper’s Christmas decor!”
- “How do I get everything baked and made when I’m cooking at different temperatures with one oven?”
Thanksgiving pops up on you, and BAM!
It’s Christmas — then you’re watching the ball drop and saying “Happy New Year!” without even thinking about how it’s a new year and you want to do #allthethings
Where did the time go? It’s all a blur, and you don’t really have good memories of it all...
Let’s RESCUE the holiday season, y’all..
Have you ever wanted to ask someone the questions you think you should know...
Hey, Ashley! I’m not making the turkey, but I’m making the stuffing, can I use boxed stock?
Hey, Ashley! I need some things to do with my people while they’re all standing around watching me cook!
Hey, Ashley! Last minute I’ve got four more people, how do I make the food go farther, I don’t want to run to the store again?
Hey, Ashley! It’s our first Christmas together, what’s the easiest way to feel festive without buying all the decorations?
When was the last time you truly
enjoyed a holiday with your people?
Where you didn’t stress about having recipes timed correctly...
You didn’t stress about ‘tablescapes’...
You didn’t stress about missing everything…
You didn’t stress about the perfect decor…
Where your mother-in-law didn’t tell you what you needed to do...
When was the last time you sat down to your Thanksgiving table and relaxed...
When was the last time you truly enjoyed your Christmas party and didn’t have that dreaded “Why am I doing this?! I don’t feel festive at all!” feeling…
Let’s edit out the mess of overcomplicated holidays.
There is/are a million things to do.
👋 Good conversations don’t magically happen with a table filled with festive knick knacks. 👋

"Last October, I was already stressing about the holidays coming up… It was my first year hosting our big family at our new house, and I knew I needed to have all my ducks in a row to make it fun for everyone AND me.
Using Ashley’s Thanksgiving Prep Challenge, I was able to effectively prepare my house, meals, and everything in between for an unforgettable Thanksgiving! Each task is broken up, so nothing seems too much, especially the week of Thanksgiving. When I sat down to Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday I was excited to dig into all the dishes. I didn’t have that “This is a lot of work for 15 minutes of eating” feeling I usually have. Even though it was my first year hosting everyone it seemed like I had been hosting for years! It felt like a Hallmark Movie!
I can’t wait to host again this year, it’s going to be even more special since COVID has kept family apart for long periods of time." — Lee Ann R.

Did you know that…
A recent Cigna survey revealed that nearly half of Americans always or sometimes feel alone (46%) or left out (47%). Fully 54% said they always or sometimes feel that no one knows them well. Loneliness isn’t just a U.S. phenomenon.

What is a Total Quality Family Time prompt??
When I was growing up, as a way of making it seem super special and important, my dad would tell us “We’re having total quality family time right now!” While in the moment it was often said in jest, those ‘TQFTs’ were some of my favorite memories.
At this point,
it comes down to this…
We’re all living at 100 miles per hour,
