Do You See What I See?

How’s that holiday shopping going? And the wrapping? It’s such a busy time, colorful, fun, and exhausting! My Christmas shopping is almost done. Nothing is wrapped. But that’s OK. It will get done.

This year I’ve been following my own advice. I’m taking the time to smell the evergreens. Are there more lights on the tree-lined city streets this year or am I just taking the time to really see them? Hear Santa’s bell? Hear the holiday music? Yes, yes, and yes!

Recently I read that preparing for a vacation can make you as happy as the actual vacation. The same applies here. Don’t rush by the holiday prep in the dash to Christmas. Enjoy the anticipation.

No matter how you celebrate the holiday season, stop and smell the evergreens. Enjoy!
