A Peppermint Pause for the Holidays
I just wanted to stop in to say that I'm going to disappear on you for a bit over the next couple of weeks.
You see, I'm always fighting an internal battle of being "in the moment," and during times when my task lists are a million miles long, I especially struggle with enjoying the here and now. So this year, I'm vowing to let things fall off my gargantuan to-do list. I'm allowing myself to be ok with doing less. I'm embracing my inner slacker. And, as a result, I'm really going to soak in the spirit of Christmas, and that alone makes my heart beat a little faster.
I had a handful of recipes I wanted to post this week, but I let my weekend get jammed with holiday crafting and baking and shopping and sitting with piping hot coffee. And, honestly, all I can say is, "ahhhhh..." I'm feeling much more centered already. And after tomorrow night, my task list will be empty. Which means that I can fill my evenings with Christmas movies and board games and a baking session or two. Ahhhhhh...
I hope your holidays are magical and peaceful and filled with things that bring you contentment!
Happiness, Laughter, Love, and Vitality,
