A Little Catching Up To Do

Man, do I feel like I have a smidge of catching up to do! I meant to blog throughout the entire Holiday Season (Christmas Season, if you prefer), even making my blog more festive by changing the theme. But as you can see, not one post was made in December. And I’m a little sad about it because that was my favorite season of all, next to Fall.

I took a seasonal position at Sephora, working on the weekends, while maintaining my regular job during the week at the dental office. I was definitely tired but managed to power through it, complete with a few break downs. The 2012 Holiday Season wasn’t exactly spent how I had envisioned it, but working the extra hours was well worth it in the end.

Since I just completed my last weekend spent working at Sephora, I can now dedicate my time to catching up on things that were thrown to the side for a while, such as deep cleaning the bathroom, the bedroom, organizing my pile of candle supplies, and lets not forget blogging!

So for starters, today I picked a new theme. How cool are those balloons? (*theme has since been changed*) It reminds me to be a little more whimsical, lighter, and imaginative. This year, I’d like to remember that I once was very imaginative and tap into that again. I’d also like to blog on a more consistent basis, which I’ve spoken about before. Here’s hoping!

Since I couldn’t post during the Holidays, here are some of our favorite Christmas decorations, including the pictures we used for our card! Enjoy and Happy New Year (you can say that even if it’s the 14th, right?)!

Sometimes I think I have a Christmas sickness. When the season is just gearing up, I fall in love with the decorations all over again. This is our 4ft tree that I decorated after getting off of work on Black Friday. Even though we had made a decision to buy a new 6ft tree the next day, it made me feel so much better after a long day just to see our little tree all lit up and decorated.

To fully appreciate the time having the tree up, while all was quiet and dark, I'd have my oatmeal and coffee in the morning sitting on the floor, and take in the beauty of the lights and ornaments.
