Well Hello There Friends,
With the cool, crisp, air nestling in for the season--I find myself perusing pinterest boards, searching sites, and wondering whimsical thoughts for the holiday season. I am sure that some of you think that I am crazy for even thinking about, (let alone preparing for) the upcoming festivus... but it is happening... well let's be serious--it happened...
I love the holiday season. I have a child-like fascination for the outpouring of cheer, kindness, and goodwill towards all--it just gives me the warm fuzzies. There is something intrinsically magical about twinkling lights, hot cocoa, and slow nights by the fireplace with good people.
Maybe it is childish to have such an innate LOVE for the holiday season, but I just adore the core sentiment, the excuse, to shower the ones I love with kindness.
My Ideal Holiday To Do List:
1. Buy Presents --> Be Present
2. Wrap Gifts --> Wrap Someone In a Hug
3. Send Gifts --> Send Peace
4. Shop For Food --> Donate Food
5. Make Cookies --> Make Love
6. See The Lights --> Be The Light
With that being said, I find great pleasure in finding "the perfect gift" (something that is sentimental, produced with integrity, AND supports a worthy cause) for my loved ones. Or as my husband likes to say, I am a big fan of #Shopporting (Shopping + Supporting).
