This Christmas Season
There is an excitement that comes around this time of year. I love smelling the holiday frangrances such as pumpkin spice, frosted evergreen trees, campfires, and roasted nuts. For me, the day starts with my favorite way to warm up first thing in the morning: a hot cup of dark roast coffee or Cafe Americano. Pulling out the Christmas decorations soon follow and the anticipation of baking goodies to take here and there. I might even be so bold as to create a new recipe if the mood strikes me. Of course, there is all the Christmas gift shopping and helping the kids with their Christmas gift shopping. I know from past experience that I can prepare weeks in advance but still not be completely ready for Christmas when it shows up much sooner than anticipated. Therefore, this lifelong planner has learned to be flexible and not have a complete freak out when the unexpected happens. Of course, I couldn't survive the holiday season without my husband. To say that we balance each other out is an understatement. He's my rock when I need him to be and he lets me do my own thing when I need to be left alone.
Getting back into my writing has given me so much joy that I feel whole again. I have also immersed myself in reading lots of books, both with my eyes and my ears. There are so many talented authors out there and I can only hope to impact others as they have impacted me. I have many blessings in my life to be thankful for this Christmas. I am grateful to those who have supported me thus far with my writing career and I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year. 2021 - we are ready for you!
