How is everyone's December going? We are in full holiday swing over here, and I'm loving every moment. I'm really grateful for this.
I know this isn't the popular feeling, but the past two years I was kinda a grinch, I wasn't that excited about the holidays. Chalk it up to moving last year the day after Christmas and the year before Luke was getting ready to leave for Canada for 4 months. That equals STRESS. This year is different. I'm in a much better place, we are settled into our home and Luke isn't leaving me EVER again for 4 months. (He doesn't know that hah. I used to be independent then I got married. What happened?) I've made myself slow down and ENJOY every minute this holiday season. Its working.
All of this to say, if you are having a hard time enoying the holidays, you are not alone. I was right there last year. I will say that will get better, I promise. Focus on one thing and make yourself think how grateful you are for it. Keep focusing on that. And lots of wine. Wine helps.
