Vividly Christmas' Author Nora

Let me introduce myself

My name is Nora, born in the 80s, and I am a huge Christmas fan! I love to bake Christmas cookies, create Christmas menus, and am totally enthusiastic about decorating! In short, I am a baking & decoration freak! Especially during Advent and Christmas. 🥰

I am a mom of a vivid little daughter and when it comes to baking & decorating, she already stepped into my footsteps. She helps me with baking and finding the right places for my decorations.

During Autumn and Winter, when we are lighting up the tea candles in the living room, she is the one who picks the scented Yankee Candle we are going to use. I love it! 💚

Another fact about me:

I have fructose intolerance. And this has been going on for a long time. So, therefore, very many of my recipes are fructose-free or low fructose.

(Not all of them, of course, because my family can eat anything and I want to offer them a variety of cookies.)

All too well, I can understand the frustration of others when baking for Christmas, when so many delicacies are not tolerated, and you are just looking for ways to make delicious Christmas cookies, which you can also handle. So if you’re looking for fructose-free/low fructose recipes, Vividly Christmas is the place for you.

What else do I do?

When I am not writing or recording a video for you, or spending time with my daughter or my husband, I am still working part-time in the hospital as a radiology technologist at the Nuclear Medicine Department. But don’t worry, I still have hobbies! 🤣 As for sports, you can find me doing Qi Gong and Tai Chi twice a week (yes, I also try to do sports). It is necessary to find balance! Isn’t it?

Why am I the right Christmas nut for you?

Especially when it comes to Christmas, I put all my heart into it!

Apart from my family, there are few things that make me as happy and enthusiastic as the time around Christmas.

That has always been the case! Even as a little girl I always liked to decorate the house with my mom. And from year to year we came up with new ideas how to make the house and the time even more festive.

I love to come home during Advent and immerse myself in a Christmassy world. Some people may find it overdone, but for my home I like to decorate it as if it were a Christmas market! It should smell good and look wonderful.

Then I am satisfied!

Everything I have tinkered, decorated, cooked and baked in the last decades I would like to share with you here on Vividly Christmas. There have been so many great ideas that you can try out for your upcoming Christmas and Advent!

If there is anything you are missing on, don’t hesitate to write and let me know! I would love to hear from you! If there is any special topic you want me to write about, please tell me! I would be delighted creating new posts especially for you! 💚

Just email! I look forward hearing from you!
