HELLO PREP WEEK | There is a lot going on in anticipation of the holidays. In my case, there is going to be a lot of wrapping – birthday and Yule gifts. Who knows? I might even put on some Christmas music.
HELLO COME FROM AWAY | Going to see Come From Away as a gift for a friend before he leaves to spend the holidays with his family. I love giving and receiving gifts that can’t be wrapped or fit in a box!
HELLO CLAIRE | I’m so excited to have her home for a few days to celebrate her birthday and attend the annual command performance (family Christmas dinner) before she has to head back home to work Christmas Day. Ah, adulting. It’s hard.
HELLO GIRLFRIENDS | I’m so glad we are able to fit in a lunch before life gets crazy. Love these two women. They are both so kind and supportive, we make a good group.
HELLO WINTER SOLSTICE | This time is to be spent with those who love and appreciate you, those who can look back on your year in comfort and safety. It’s okay to celebrate this event in whichever way resonates which in our case includes a simple gift exchange, sugar cookies, tourtiere and a yule log. (Traditionally Yule season ends 11 days after the Winter Solstice.)
HELLO MONDAY | You are my favourite day of the week. I love that you provide me with 52 fresh starts every year.
