I love the festiveness of the season, the music, the smells, the special foodie treats and the excuse for good times with loved ones. I hate the chaos, materialism and craziness that comes with it.
My personal antidote is Happy Month. I’ll be posting everyday (or as close as I can get) with the things that made me happy that day. It's a bit Pollyanna I know but having done it for a couple of years now it's amazing how well it helps keep my focus on what is really important in my life and what is just Dec madness. So here we go:
Things that made me happy yesterday: - Nov 30
1. Roses still blooming in the garden.
2. Spending time with Monkey and her Mom. (Nothing is better than a 13-day old that loves to snuggle. :>)
3. A long chat with Bridget about nothing in particular.
