These days between Christmas and New Year’s Day are some of my very favorite. Snowy slippers, hot chocolate, Christmas music and…

wayyy too much sugar.

This week always feels like some kind of sweet bonus to a season that goes by all too fast.

In fact, if you said that tomorrow was actually Thanksgiving Day…

…rather than New Year’s Day…

I would happily, gratefully believe it…love it, actually.

Truth be told, I’m a bit of a “bask-er.” I work very, very hard to to slow everything down…

in order to feel it all that much more. I guess I’m hoping that if we could just let all that holiday goodness soak into our hearts and let it sink to the tips of our toes, and shoot out the end of our fingers like warm lovely light–well then…

It might just be that much easier to keep it the rest of the year.

Ok, maybe just for the first half.

Because by that time, I’m already looking forward to the next season–planning, sewing, sneaking around and scheming.

Yeah….I firmly believe that living from one Christmas season to the next…

is a good, good thing.

  1. I know I say it all the time but I love your guts Launi! I needed to read this today because I’m a Personality Type 1 sort of person, gotta go go go, speed things up to my own pace, feel it all, see it all, do it all!

    This post reminded me that not only are the holidays almost over but this year has been really great and its time to really just relaaax and soak it in, every ounce, every moment of sweet joy. Yeah. nothing more needs to be said on the subject… time to shut off the brain and just vibe ^_^

    Thank you. Love you. Looking forward to a New Year with you!

  2. You–my dear are so, so good for me! I LOVE your comments because they just make me sooo dang happy. Oh, and I’d have responded sooner, but all my comments have been going into spam, so I wasn’t getting any notice that they were even there. Sincerely, I thought I was alone in the world. Perhaps I’ll start blogging again. :} And we missed you Tuesday.
