Merry Awkward Christmas

So, I have left this to the last possible day to post. I dunno about you, but the silly season really hit this year for me. December has been madness…. utter madness. Honestly I am not entirely sure why either, but there seems to have been a culmination of a hundred tiny things that have just snowballed into Christmas madness. I only finished my Christmas shopping last night. Normally I am a finished by early December kinda girl. It has thrown me a little bit, but hey, life tends to do that every now and then. But of course, I found time to do something a little bit... well... silly this silly season. The mister and I got our portrait taken. I don't think I really even need to write anything... you can just look at them and admire how awesomely awkward we are...

I don’t want to necessarily write a ‘what I’ve learned’ post, not yet anyway. I need to do some more reflection before I share some of that stuff… Realistically, I have learnt a lot of stuff this year and as with most years learning, I haven’t actioned some of the new knowledge yet, and find myself in a cycle of knowing what I should do, and doing something different. That’s ok, to a point, but I am hoping that with a few days off and a buzz of excitement over the beginning of the new year that things will start to change, that the gears will begin to shift, and that 2016 will be a place of change, of growth and of excitement.

Before I sign off for the holidays, I just want to remind you of something. As you are frantically finding that last gift, or wrestling that stranger in the supermarket for the last Christmas ham because you forgot to order one, remember that not everyone has it so good this time of year. It can be a hard time for people who aren’t as fortunate, or who are missing people from their lives. I know this more than ever this year. So please, take a second, be kind, be humble and be gentle with the people that are around you, we all have a story and its easy to get lost in our own at this time of year. I hope that you and your family have a safe, and delicious Christmas, filled with love and laughter and the important things like family and friends, good food and even better wine.

Merry Christmas loves. I hope you have an amazing one. xx
