I did it, I finally caved. I'm listening to Christmas music this morning. I was kind of annoyed last week...things just seem to move faster and faster everyday and everyone was done with fall and onto Christmas the day after Halloween and I wasn't ready!
I know, coming from me that might seem odd. Because I AM usually the one who is playing Christmas music before Halloween... so hypocritical of me.
But this year I genuinely felt upset at how fast we all move from one thing to the next. Life needs to slow down! Or maybe I just feel the need to slow down and enjoy every bit of it. But I'm over it now I guess, I think it was the extra pressure on my brain from my migraine. But give the people what they want! And they WANT Christmas, sorry Thanksgiving... we still love you for the fun family dynamics and full bellies though.
I guess I'll slowly start bringing out one Christmas decoration at a time and see if Sam notices 😉 HAHA. I also want hope to find the time to share some of our family favorite foods during the holidays on the blog! I have to see if my mom minds me sharing some of her sides that have always been a staple and a huge hit with everyone. I'd also love to share our classic holiday cookies and treats. Holidays (Thanksgiving AND Christmas) with our extended family is always a giant delicious feast... I wish by now I'd found the perfect pair of stretchy pants to wear at every family get together.
I'll be doing a review of Lakeway Resort & Spa this week, and then I'm onto Charleston next week so I'll get to sharing as many recipes as I can/you're interested in seeing when I get back!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday.
Thinking about everyone who lost loved ones and was affected by that horrible shooting yesterday in Sutherland Springs, TX... prayers going out today.
