I'm linking up again this week with Deb Runs for her Wednesday Word.
This week, our word is Celebrate.
What a great word for this season! It seems like there's so much to celebrate this time of year, between Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, and everything in between. There's office parties, school parties, neighborhood parties, family parties. Party party party!
It can kind of get overwhelming. Right? Who's with me here?
Sometimes, it's nice to dial back the celebration a little. This year, I'm trying to enjoy the little things that go into the season.
Like cuddling up on the couch with my husband after a (very) long, (very) hard day to enjoy a glass of wine in my Spode glass, with a Christmas cookie or two (or three - who's counting?).
Or relishing in fun traditions with my daughter, like baking Christmas cookies and pulling out a new ornament each day on our Advent Calendar.
This year, we're even skipping the big, huge family party at great-grandma's house. Instead, we're opting to stay home with my husband's immediate family, and enjoy a relaxing, quiet evening on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Well, there's still nearly 10-11 of us, but you get my drift.
Some years it is fun to Celebrate - capital "C", but this year seems like a good year to cozy up, simmer down, and celebrate - little "c".
How do you celebrate the holidays? Big and lavish, or small and comfortable?
