Good Morning Sunshine’s,
I have quite the surprise for you this morning!!
Lots and lots annnnd lots of cookies.
Over 100 to be exact. And I want to give them all to Y-O-U!!
Did you know we have exactly 7 weeks until Christmas?
Seven weeks, that sounds like quite a while, right? But then when you plan for Thanksgiving, and Christmas shopping, putting up the Christmas tree, sending out your christmas cards, decorating the house, visiting family, holiday parties and lets not even begin talking about all the baking and cooking that needs to be done – – 7 weeks really isn’t that long. It’s going to fly by faster than “ho ho ho ”
So, how do I feel about the rush of holiday cheer?
WOOOHOOOOO – YIPPEEE – WOOT WOOT!!
I COULD NOT BE MORE EXCITED!!
In case you didn’t know, or could not tell ( since I’m not obvious at all) I L-O-V-E Christmas!! I love the time with family, the feeling of joy in the air, kids on their best behavior waiting for the magic of Christmas morning, I love the cookies and the parties and the chance to relax. I love the traditions and the memories.
I love it all.
And that also has to do with the fact that there are a million special traditions my family and I share over the holiday season, creating amazing memories and so much to laugh about.
Whether it’s coming up with the special cookies that will be included in my annual family cookie box, going out to find the perfect tree, staying up late wrapping gifts, hanging the lights around the house, placing our Christmas ornaments on the tree, singing at the top of my lungs to Christmas carols as I bake late into the morning or dancing around the kitchen with Mama LTSL as we cook and fill the kitchen with Christmas scents on Christmas Eve.
I love every bit of it.
But let’s be honest, the holiday season can also be an incredibly busy time of year. It can be exhausting, and overwhelming. Though you’d love to leave a plate out of fresh baked cookies for Santa – – it’s not always possible.
I’ve got your back Living The Sweet Life Readers!!
