At least for me. There have been plenty of high points and I’ve experienced lots of joy, too, but there was a lot of tough stuff happening in my life this past year. The cry until you collapse, ache…

Making Life Easier One Blow Dryer At A Time

3

A few months after my first baby was born I thought I needed a change and proceeded to chop 15 inches off my hair length. FIFTEEN INCHES. That’s like mid-life crisis level action there, CODE RED! It took me close to three years to grow back out and I swore I’d never make a drastic chop like that again. So here I am, 6 years, two more babies, and a mess of hair later. There are many many days where…

6 Favorite Christmas Books to Read Now

Favorite Christmas Books

When my husband and I were newlyweds, we started acquiring Christmas books, children’s books, mostly. We add a new one to the stash each year or so, and when the tree trimmings come out of storage, so do the books! I’ve read that some families wrap their Christmas books in festive paper and open one each night in December leading up to Christmas, but we prefer to put our collection out in a basket so all the books can be…

My Favorite Holiday Flicks

Let’s be honest, binge watching all my favorite holiday movies is pretty much the best tradition ever.  A tradition that requires zero effort other then plopping down on the couch, or my bed if I please, tuning up ye olde dvd player and settling in for the night. I am all about the minimal effort when it comes to the holidays and I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t participated in this tradition several times already. Some people hit the…

Do You Remember The Smells Of Christmas?

pine trees

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Isn’t it the greatest? The warm feeling of friends and family everywhere, plans of spending time in front of the fire with my favorite books or a 5,000 piece puzzle and even a cup or two of ridiculously rich eggnog. And I didn’t even get to the presents. Not that they count, or anything materialistic like that. Not to be cliché, but it really is the most wonderful time of…
