Is there anything better than a yummy quick bread during the holidays? The only thing that could add to it is a cute printable and reminder that you’re #doingood! This Cranberry Orange Bread has all of those things.
This post is in partnership with Minute Maid. I am beyond thrilled to work with a company I absolutely love and believe in.
Over the last few months I’ve had the chance to reflect on parenting and highlighting ways that people are #doingood, thanks to Minute Maid. As I’ve mentioned before, I feel so fortunate to be a part of this campaign. When life is crazy and stressful and overwhelming, taking the time to remind myself that I’m doing ok (or more than just ok) and that others around me are awesome, has been so rewarding. We get so focused on doing all the things that sometimes we forget to stop and enjoy. Stop and enjoy by doing this fun Holiday Kindness Countdown Calendar with your family!
One of the ways that I show love to people is by making treats and delivering them. I might not say the right thing but people feel my love and encouragement when I drop off goodies at their doorstep. I love making printables and writing notes with the treats we deliver. I’ve passed that on to my kids. Sometimes they roll their eyes at me or complain that they don’t get a treat because it’s meant for someone else. But I hope as they grow older they will see that when you put good in, you get good out.
This video perfectly illustrates that. I dare you to watch without tearing up —
See? Wasn’t it amazing? You can use this easy letter maker for Minute Maid to create your own heartfelt letter for your parents or someone that you love. Print it out and deliver it with this treat —
