If I’m REALLY honest, December is a tough one for me…
As always, I’ll be real with you and admit that apart from my birthday (bless Sagittarius season), I practically dread December. I know that sounds SO Grinchy (I love the Grinch, so I’m really okay if you call me that), but I simply do not resonate with the holiday hype. For years I’ve attributed this to the past circumstances of my life; whether it be family stresses, living situations, working long retail hours, finances…the list goes on. And with this Grinchy perspective it’s clear I take even greater notice to the societal obsession of unrealistic expectations that truly have nothing to do with Christmas at all.
Oh and for the record, I know my perspective on the holiday’s is not for everyone, but I also know it is for someone.
And if that is you, I’m really excited you’re here…

GIRL, don’t be shocked (I’m well aware this is unpopular opinion), but if you’ve followed along with me for a holiday season or two, you likely know I’m not a huge holiday gal. But that doesn’t mean I don’t support YOUR holiday obsession!

Oh, Valentines Day.
Is it just me, or is it one of those holidays you either love or hate? And more often than not, your opinion of the day revolves around your relationship status, right?
(Now I’m not sure if as a married woman it’s “appropriate” to ask this but…) Why is it that we allow our relationship(s) with other people to impact the the way we love ourselves? What about YOU? What about the love you have for YOU? That MUST stand for something, right?

By now you probably know my feelings about the holidays (and if you don’t, check out my Christmas blog or IGTV video here).
But just in case you’re all together new here, let me catch you up…
Let’s just say I’m not one to begin celebrating in October or to wear head-to-toe red and green to a holiday event. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not so much a Grinch as I am a woman celebrating the holidays in her own unique way. For me, that means creating new traditions and sharing memorable moments rather than falling into holiday induced anxiety, debt, and disappointment. Because to be honest, it allows me (and everyone around me) to actually enjoy the holiday!
