I’ve come to the conclusion that if you’re going to make a goal, it should involve something you like doing. Of all the goals I set in 2016, this is the only one I managed to achieve. But I crushed it.
The remainder of 2016 is going to involve reading (I picked up the biography that inspired Lin-Manuel Miranda to write the Hamilton musical because I’m obsessed), mitten knitting, and the madness that is Christmas. Thankfully, we’ve been gone and back for my family Christmas (a wonderful time even though family members were dropping like flies with one illness or another) and that leaves Jesse’s family celebration and our own little family. Can I say creating the “we don’t go anywhere Christmas day” tradition was the greatest thing I’ve ever done? Seriously. I either make crock-pot steel cut oats or french toast casserole for breakfast (yay for meals you can make the night before) and then we get to spend all day in our jammies, playing with toys, listening to favorite Christmas playlists, watching movies, and being lazy. It’s delicious.
What’s your favorite way to celebrate the day?
*With the crazed time of year, I wanted to give you all the heads up that my plan is to be MIA from now until mid-January. I’m hoping to maybe get a post about my word for the year and some goal planning up on January 1 (because if I don’t I’m afraid someone with take away my blogger card), but my first priority is to enjoy this time (and then the next couple of weeks of catch up) without too many outside obligations. Which is basically my long winded way of saying, no need to worry if I’m missing for a few weeks, I’m just loving the season with my family.
Wishing you a happy everything!!!
