December is a crazy month for all of us. For me, I seem to always get hung up between reminiscing over the previous year (and if I’m being totally honest – picking at myself for what I should have done better) and getting excited over the new year, the new start, and the new adventures that await. But I have to be careful that I don’t get so wrapped up in all of that and forget to enjoy where I am right now.
I took the last 2 weeks of December off and just used them to enjoy what matters most… my family. I have to admit that I loved every moment of it! It’s funny because in the early years, it would have killed me to be away from my work for so long (I craved it), but the infatuation stage of my #girlboss ways has passed and now, almost 8 years later, we are in the enduring love stage – or something like that. 😉
We went skiing, watched movies, made treats, sang carols, read Harry Potter as a family, and prepped to host our first adults only Black Tie New Years Eve party. We celebrated our oldest’s birthday, played games, ate junk food, and spent time with cousins and family. We had Ugly Sweater Parties, fancy parties, and lots and lots of hot chocolate. December was a great month because family was at it’s center… I want more of that every month. It may not be realistic to not work 2 weeks out of each month, but I definitely see carving out more time to just be us.
And that’s my Instagram Roundup for December!
