Good morning! How are you? How was your Christmas holiday? Mine was fabulous; relaxing, restful and peaceful. For only the 3rd time in 20 years together, my husband and I spent Christmas alone and at home. We cooked baked, read, relaxed and did it all over again for a few days. We missed our families but unfortunately this year was not the year for us all to be together.
I already miss the "spirit" of Christmas, but I guess that is why they call it "the most wonderful time of the year" because it only happens once a year. I am going to be savoring the last vestiges of the holiday season this week and getting ready to ring in the new year.
Did you enjoy your Christmas festivities? Were you able to be with your family and friends? Are you ready to start the New Year?
I have to be honest, I am ready to get back into my routine. I have eaten too much chocolate, drank too much champagne and have not worked out nearly enough. Add that to the endless hours spent watching Christmas shows and other things I do not normally watch; my mind, body and spirit are ready to reboot.
Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed every cup of cocoa, every piece(s) of chocolate and cookie(s) and hour(s) on the couch. I am just ready for all of the fabulous things that are awaiting me in the New Year.
I hope that you have a fabulous week! Enjoy your time with family and friends; the meals, the movies, the treats and more.
