In case you missed the “We Hate You, Florida” weather map last week, the sunshine state isn’t participating in winter right now. But despite this hot and balmy December, the holiday festivities are going strong. I am so in the Christmas spirit, ya’ll!
We’ve enjoyed lots of quality time with our friends. More are coming into town in the next week, and I can hardly stand it. We pulled all the decorations down from the attic, found things from our first Christmas in our home that made me sentimental and weepy, trimmed a perfect tiny tree, attended a few work-related holiday parties, and baked a holiday treat or two. I even finished my shopping early!
For the last couple of years, C and I have been so consumed with the business we kind of passed right over the holidays. We went through the motions with family and friends, but didn’t buy a tree, decorate the house, or even exchange gifts. This year we made a pact to slow down and savor the season, and it’s lovely.
So even though I can’t comfortably cuddle up in a chunky sweater with a cup of cocoa just yet, I’m loving every minute of this December. I hope you are, too!
