Stuff I'm Thankful For

I'm recovering from Thanksgiving overload, and my brain hurts from too much food, so I'm afraid this is going to be a lame entry. Consider this a warm up for what will no doubt be a lengthy and humerous recap of the BEHS class of 95 debaucherie.

Today I'm reflecting on my luckiness and how grateful I am to have such fantabulous friends and loved ones.

I'm also reflecting on how much I absolutey adore the Christmas season, and I'm shocking myself with my lack of Christmas spirit thus far. This time last year, my trees were up and my house was completely outfitted in snowmen.

We had 4 inches of snow dropped on us yesterday morning, and suddenly, i'm less inclined to deck my halls with boughs of plastic holly.

I think it reminded me of how much work Christmas is.

The best gift my family ever gave each other was to do away with buying gifts and decorating and some of the other accoutrements of Christmas... and instead spend a few days away together. We did it for the first time last year and it was the most relaxing holiday season I've ever had. There are plenty of other people's decorations to look at (I got more than my fill at SJ's house alone!) and anything that avoids the malls at the holidays is OK in my book! I know it's not for everyone, but it's a great experiment to bring you back to what Christmas is supposed to be all about... spending time and relaxing with those you love. Happy Holidays to all!
