Today’s Blogger Guest Post for The Holiday Project: Hayley from Simply Scrumptious  [This is our last post for The Holiday Project, and we’re bringing it back to where it all started…San Francisco! Hayley’s blog is so amazing. Check out her tasty recipes when you get a chance!] ******************************************** Hi! I’m Hayley (or Hayles as my friends refer to me) over at Simply Scrumptious.

‘Banh Mi’ — A Gourmet Vietnamese-Style Sandwich

Today’s Reader Guest Post for The Holiday Project: Nicole and Sheeter from Davis, California [These two make an awesome team.

If asked what they would do if they did get to meet, these would be their answers: Camille: My dear friend Marie and also my partner in myFudo is faced with a dilemma far from anything I’ve ever experienced. She resides a world away from her childhood home. I admire her strength for as I found [Continue Reading…]
