There is no time quite like the holidays! Although we may get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season, what's most important is spending time with those you love amidst all the celebrations.
This year and every year, I am thankful for my amazing family and friends. The spirit of the season and the traditions that come with it are what is most valuable to me--helping my mom mom decorate the house with decorations she's had since she was a little girl, lending a hand as my dad and stepmom prepare the family business for the busiest time of year, spending quality time with my cousins making gingerbread houses, the list goes on and on. It's so much more than the notion that this time of year is all about buying presents and expecting one in return.
Here's a new twist on a typical holiday to-do list that I'm going to try to embrace this year, and I hope you will too! Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!
