First and foremost, I want to start off this blog post by saying that I hope everyone had an absolutely wonderful Christmas.
The last 48-hours seem like they came and went in the blink of an eye, and I am finding myself in slight disbelief that today is actually December 26th and Christmas is actually over and won’t be back until next year.
As the work day pushed forward on Friday, I could feel myself getting sicker and sicker, and I ended my day with a trip to immediate care on my way home to ensure I didn’t have strep throat, or any other illness that would prevent me from enjoying this weekend – #teacherprobs, am I right? While I did miss out on an ugly sweater party that I had been looking forward to with friends on Friday night, I did not miss any celebration or preparation with my family in regards to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Little victories, right?
All in all, this weekend was a great one. For the first time in years, it was a white Christmas. I am filled to the brim with way too much food and way too many goodies. I spent time with every single person in my life that I love and adore. I gave away all of the gifts that I have been staring at under the tree for the past month, and received so many generous and thoughtful gifts in return. I am thankful and I am blessed to have the life I do. And now, I am looking at my trees wishing it didn’t all end and that they weren’t going to have to come down sometime this week.
With that being said, here’s to the last week of 2017. . and the last week of being 24! Let’s end it with a bang! xoxo.
