It’s the final month of the year. How time flew by is beyond me. I wanted to take a moment to reflect on this coming month.

The surrounding atmosphere is in festive cheer and the holidays are in full swing. Thanksgiving has just passed and there’s still Christmas and New Year’s to come.

I have officially decorated my work desk space with rhinestone snowflakes, glittery Styrofoam Christmas trees and a string of glittery penguins hanging near my desk.

However, I’m slightly stressing out over the following weeks to come. Aren’t we all?

THERE’S CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. WORK DEADLINES. MORE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. APPOINTMENTS. EVEN MORE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. COLLEGE GRADUATIONS. AND THE LAST BIT OF CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. AND OF COURSE FAMILY CHRISTMAS PARTIES.

When do I catch a break? When do any of us catch a break?

Instead of focusing on the things that need to get done during this holiday season, why not put some joy to it. Why not enjoy the precious moments that make us happy.

Above all the craziness, I look forward to so much this month.
I look forward to drinking hot cocoa on really cold nights.
I look forward to going outdoor ice skating.
I look forward to catching up with old college friends.
I look forward to squeezing in a quick getaway trip to refresh myself.
I look forward to spending time with my loved ones.
Lastly, I look forward to reflecting on the true reason for this season.

December is a month to enjoy. It is after all the most wonderful time of the year.

What are you looking forward to this month?

Love,

I wanted to start my first blog post  introducing myself and giving you all a sneak peak at what’s to come 🙂

    • West coast born, Southern Raised.
    • I am one of 6 siblings. The Second youngest at that 😉
    • Avid Coffee Drinker.
    • Enormous Harry Potter Fanatic!!!
    • I graduated college in 4 years. Easier said than done. *Phew
    • I grew up speaking Spanish and English, and studied French in High School and throughout College. So that would make me multilingual right!?
    • Lover of all French things, and I went to Paris for the first time this summer!!
    • My favorite color is blue.
    • As a kid I was terrified of dogs. Now I love them! Especially Samoyeds, German Shepherds and Goldendoodles 🙂

Future blog posts will consist of Relationships, Faith, Lifestyle, and anything in between!

Sincerely,
