You may have noticed December snuck onto the pages of the calendar. And it’s been months since I’ve done one of my regular posts.
It’s December, you can’t choose it to be something else, or wish it away. You know it’s there. All of the end of year activities and traditions: baking, Christmas cards, seeing friends and family, sharing stories, decorating, and of course, celebrating the season.
I love this time of year. Yeah, it’s here, there, everywhere—since August if you’re a retailer. The time of year we traditionally take on more than we can chew. Or chew on more than we can take on. 😉
So when you’re burning the midnight oil prepping your traditions, getting ready for travel to distant locales, or just planning a baking frenzy, don’t forget to take a moment, sit back, relax, and spend some time taking care of yourself.
One family-favorite tradition in our household each year is listening to A Cup of Christmas Tea, by Tom Hegg. Perhaps we can share a cup of Christmas tea together.
Have a great holiday season everyone, however you celebrate it!
