Finding my Christmas spirit has been a long process this year. (It might have something to do with the fact that its currently 80 degrees and earlier today I saw Santa wearing shorts! Temperatures that warm, three days before Christmas, is something that this Northern can't wrap her brain around.) I was starting to wonder if I was ever going to locate my holiday loving self. However, after spending the last five days watching nothing but Christmas music, listening to my favorite holiday Pandora station, waiting in line for 20 minutes at the post office to ship off presents, and packing for my trip home I’m glad to say that I’ve finally found the spirit that has been evading me.
I head home later today to spend the next week and a half with my family. There will be baking, last minute gift buying, cuddles with my dog, catching up with friends, and just really enjoying being home among my nearest and dearest.
I hope that you all have found a piece of the holidays to hold on to and can spend lots of time with your loved ones creating new memories and reliving old traditions.
Enjoy the season, friends!
