Merry Christmas!!


Hi everyone,

You’ll likely have noticed that this website (and this author) have gone into a bit of holiday hibernation.  I’m drinking fancy drinks involving chocolate, some sort of alcohol and more chocolate, feeling nostalgic for Christmases I likely wasn’t even alive for, and fondly reminiscing of Christmases that I mos’ def’ was alive for.  The beginning of this month was quite difficult, to be honest, and so I’m especially thrilled that all seems well with my little world again, and I sincerely hope that that’s the case for you, too.  This dreamy, slowed-down pace is not conducive to my mom’s schedule.  Her zest for the holidays is largely manifested in a perfectionism and over-achievement that could put Martha Stewart to shame.  Today’s itinerary included making approximately eleventy billion different types of muffins and washing the kitchen cabinets.  Festive! Jolly! 

This time of year is full of magic and all sorts of special, but it can also be incredibly overwhelming and rather stressful (more to come in an upcoming article), but may we all continue to appreciate the magical moments this season brings us and to keep the light in our hearts.

Merry Christmas, kiddywinks!

Much love and holiday cheer,
