Christmas Magic...

The last few days for me have been very trying. Between work which is suddenly super busy and preparing for Christmas which this year is very challenging due to steep paycuts earlier in the year I have been trying to come up with ideas which will fufill my need for a beautiful holiday season in a very budget concious way. To that note, I just wrote "Santa" letters to my Niece, Gabby Nephew, Miller and to my little buddy, Nick ( a dear friends son) I also drew the Owner of my Companies name for Secret Santa and decided to donate a selection of toys, books, and games in his name to Toys for Tots.
I feel way more relaxed now..Thanks for letting me share. xo

Holiday Magic

Although I am an adult, I still feel enjoy the magical feeling that comes this time of the year. Between the twinkly lights and the warm fuzzy feeling that seems to lace the air. I have made a conscious decison to celebrate the Holidays the same way this year as I have done every other year although this year on a much simpler scale with twice as much love and appreciation for everyone and everything that has touched my life. I am planning on taking as many yoga classes as possible and planning small get togethers with old friends. I partook in an ornament swap, which was a fun first for me! Thank you to Micaela @ Dolce Vita for arranging such a fun event! We do Secret Santa at work and I get to be Santa to...well if I told there would be no magic and that is such a great part of this season- it doesn't matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hannakuah, Kwanza, Festivus or just partake in the warm loving feeling of being around friends and family. I wish you all 11 days til the first day of Hannakuah or 24 Sleeps til Santa comes to fill your stocking. However you choose to celebrate..enjoy!!! xoxo Carolyn
