Let the Holidays Begin

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
(Henry David Thoreau)

Whew! I can't believe that Thanksgiving has already come and gone.

For those of you who are wondering, I surprised myself by having an evenly paced day with very little rushing or panic—a small, but significant, victory.

My mister and I enjoyed all the yummy home-cooked goodness of old family recipes. The highlight of my day (other than the food) was finding the time to go for a run and practice some yoga.

I hope you celebrated with loved ones, enjoyed delicious food and found time to take care of yourself over this holiday weekend.

After washing my dishes and filling tupperwares full of leftovers, I wasted no time getting into the holiday spirit. The last few days I've checked nearly everyone off my Christmas list and decorated my apartment with small seasonal tidings. My goal is to have all my presents under the tree or in the mail by December 14.
