As much as I love adventuring out into the world, during the holidays, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be than good ‘ol Columbus town. Besides spending time with family and friends, we have a wealth of activities to enjoy, food to sample, and places to explore right here. Recently, a group of my favorite “mompreneurs” (Columbus local bloggers!) got together so we could share some of our ideas for local holiday fun.

I promise that your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be a BLAST!
