State of the Christmas update.
I did it.
Back when Hark the Herald Angels thing wasn’t really a thing yet, I made Christmas resolutions and almost stuck to most of them. Which is really, really good for me. Most of the time I forget I even made a resolution.
I ordered gifts online. Check.
I wrapped as I went. Check.
I planned five last-minute parties when I said I was only going to plan one. Almost check.
I listened to Christmas music every day. Check. (although just between us….if I hear Baby It’s Cold Outside one more time my hair is going to curl all on its own)
But most importantly? I paused. I slowed down every now and then. I laughed really hard. I looked at more Christmas lights. I drank more hot chocolate. I added mini-marshmallows whenever I could. I sang more carols.
And I tried to spread a little joy wherever I went and remember the reason for the season.
Because that’s what Christmas is truly about. 🙂
And I leave you with this easy idea sent in by a reader.
I made this merry banner here.
But wouldn’t it make the perfect monogram tag for presents?
Just cut out a letter from a card with their initial.
Merry Christmas gift wrapping from our house to yours.
