Christmas is coming, and the ladies of Runaway Angel are filled with the holiday spirit.
Every year we get to see Cadence, Ann, and Stacey share some fun stuff on their social media channels for the holidays, so this year we decided to reach out and get them to join our celebrations.
We caught up with Runaway Angel for a holiday round of 5 Quick Questions to learn a little more about their Christmas favourites. AND, we got the ladies to share their favourite shortbread recipe.
Check out the Q&A, the recipe, and enjoy!
