How is all of your holiday planning going friends? I'm just where I want to be. This year I'm taking the pressure off of myself to try and let the holiday spirit speak to me again.
My tree is up. It's not all decorated, but who says you have to have a million ornaments on your tree? Maybe I'll put some on if it seems like a fun thing to do. If it doesn't it's O.K. See where I'm going with this?
It alright to opt out of your yearly cookie exchange this year, or leave some of those cute holiday knick-knacks in the box, if it means you can enjoy yourself and your loved ones more.
I decided that cards were important to me this year and that was my first priority. My cards have been sent out and I'm hanging the ones that we recieve on some twine that we strung up around our sunporch. I bought some tiny clothes pins to hang them with & it only cost me $12.00 total for the twine and clothes pins. Do you like it?
You can see that Oskar is in the holiday spirit with his candy cane collar.
I guess in my rambling way what I'm trying to say is don't put too much pressure on yourself to make the holidays "perfect". Identify what's most important, make that a priority, and then do the rest if it sounds like fun.
What are you doing to make your holildays less stressful? I'll take all of the ideas I can get, lol!
