It's New Years Eve and once again I proclaim my holiday wishes to you a day early. You see I'll be far too busy tomorrow making perogies and sauerkraut for a little New Years Day fest. Tonight I plan to drink champagne in my pajamas and wake up just in time to watch the ball drop. It's becoming a bit of a tradition in our house. 2016 is only a few hours away. Happy New Year! - b.
My holiday wishes come to you just a tad early this year. Instead of frantically surfing the internet tomorrow morning take a minute to kiss your someone under the mistletoe, or tell your grandparents you love them, or meditate on what this holly-jolly means. It's Christmas after all.
As for me, I'm spending the holiday in Ohio this year. For the first time in 4 years the whole family will be together and I'm going to selfishly savor this time with all of my being. There will be too much of a lot of things, but love is not among them. Love is something we can always share/give more of. Merry Christmas! - b.
With temperatures so low you can count the total degrees on a single hand it's easy to start feeling a little blah about, well, everything. So how do you beat the winter blues? Pretend it's spring!
...buy fresh flowers for your home.
give yourself an at home spa day...
...wear a springy color.
make a fresh scented room spray...
...put a fresh set of sheets on your bed.
host an indoor picnic with your number one...
This list is as much a reminder to me, as it is a tool for you. I've been feeling a little blue lately and employing just a few of these springy tricks is making a world of difference. What are your favorite spring traditions, and can you move them indoors? - b.
