It’s no surprise I took a hiatus from blogging over the last few months. I mean, hell, the last post I made, other than my yearly music recap, dates all the way back to October 2018!
I feel like it’s a long standing joke that the days between Christmas and New Years are all a blur – nobody really knows what day it is, where they are, or what the hell is even going on. For me, I feel like this time extends way before Christmas, to Thanksgiving. I feel like once Turkey Day hits, life is shifted into top gear and we’re flying until suddenly the year is over and a new one is beginning with no warning.
I tend to like to take the time during this never-ending holiday season to spend time with family, more so now that my brother lives in Ohio and isn’t home all the time, and especially now that I moved out of the house and don’t see my family nearly as much anymore.
I wish I had some crazy story to tell you about where I’ve been, but really, I’ve just been here. I didn’t go anywhere, didn’t really even do much other than take the time to appreciate those around me.
One thing that I really did enjoy during my time off was being able to decorate my own space for the holidays. Holiday decorating has always been a favorite activity of mine, but having a home of your own really let my creativity flow [and money flow out of my wallet, if we’re being honest here]. I didn’t realize how crazy I went until today when I set time aside to take everything down and box it up until next year. I hate that now my home looks so empty and boring, but it’s ready for some new memories to be made into the new year.
What are some of your favorite memories made throughout this holiday season? xoxo.
