Mood: December


December has been a weird month so far. I left my full-time job on November 30th to run my business full-time. The first week, I wanted to just give myself time to chill - I haven’t had a proper vacation in YEARS, and as someone who can get anxious and worked up - even when I have taken days off, it’s been hard for me to turn off the voice in my head and really get focused on relaxing. That in itself is a weird sentence, hey? Focused, on relaxing - ha! But it’s true. It’s not easy for me.

With Christmas coming up, things are naturally slow. November was an insanely busy month for me - freelance wise and of course tying up all of the loose ends possible at my job - and so I’m definitely in need of recovery. I’m feel the neutral, green and brass vibes for the holiday season. It’s our first year with a REAL tree (by real - I don’t mean, an actual tree from the forrest - I mean like a full-sized actual “family-style” christmas tree) and I’m really excited. If you haven’t seen it on instagram - you can see it here. It’s also our first married Christmas, so that is special too.

Basically, I’m just excited for family time, down-time, husband and wife time, and all that good stuff. Some hot chocolate too, I think! How are you feeling when it comes to Christmas? All ready? Prepped? Relaxed? Dreading it? Don’t celebrate it? Lots of options and I’d love to hear your thoughts!

As always, all images are from my Pinterest, and you can find them there!
