December is a month of visions of sugar plums - or visions of perfectly decorated trees with just-right presents wrapped beautifully and stacked under them. Of cookies baking in the oven and homemade hostess gifts at the ready. All by the first weekend of the month, so we can sit back, sip champagne and enjoy the season.
But at our house, decorations are still strewn across the living room in boxes. The wreaths and garlands are on the porch where Fed Ex left them. Gifts? Cards? Not so much.
But you know, that's okay. You hear a lot about "simplifying" during the holidays, which is a lovely idea, but I'm not so good at it. I really do love all the little projects and to-dos. This year, though, I'm trying to settle back, enjoy the process and not fret about being finished. The season is a work in progress - but the progress is fun! So why worry that things aren't done or "perfect"?
The holiday season goes so fast. Here's to finding joy in this very moment and all its imperfections!
Happy Weekend, everyone! XO
