There’s no denying my affinity for all things Christmas, but like most folks I know, the last few years I’ve found myself to be overextended in every sense of the word. Despite closing shop between Christmas and New Years each year, I’m oftena shell of a human by that point, and have legitimately been bedridden come New Years for the last three years in a row. I still haven’t quite figured out the secret to the madness (case in point: I’m currently on week three of a cough and cold situation), but will let you know if I ever unveil it. Until then, I will simply be over here soaking in the twinkly lights, and back to back meetings, with a pep in my step and a good attitude, all while pretending like this lingering cough doesn’t exist. That said, I am admittedly looking forward to this weekend, as I will be sneaking away with some of my blogger friends for a little R&R at one of my very favourite spots in the world, where nobody will need me for a thing. In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been up to for the last little while. And if you have any tips on slowing down to truly savour the holiday season – which is still my absolute favourite, despite the madness – please let me know! I’m all ears.
