My mom and i went and bought a tree today! can't believe Christmas is right around the corner...wow...this year feels a little surreal as I have been on such a one track motion for so long in terms of the relocation that I didn't even have time to think about Christmas...so, first of all..Merry Christmas..I think that this year it will be important to remember that it is not all about presents and material things etc...but about family and love and sharing...ok, so maybe this year i don't have much money, but that is ok...I think there are many of us in the same boat and it is important to remember that this does not make Christmas..what makes Christmas is the life we have and the people that it touches..as much as it is fun to be able to buy a ton of presents, it can also put pressure on some to try and match the gift giving all around...i hope this doesn't sound like a cop out for gifts cause i am actually managing quite well from a creative standpoint, but the point i am trying to make is that Christmas can get so layered with giving and receiving that it is easy to forget the simplicity of acknowledging all the things that truly matter. So to all of you...love the ones your with and love the ones you aren't with. Merry Christmas.
and if anyone wants to read my Christmas list...let me know.
