Christmas is in full swing! I’ve decided to keep it simple this year. Realistically, there are 24 hours in a day and most of those hours are occupied by my two favorite guys, Nate and Luke. I’d rather stay sane and present than make myself crazy doing every possible holiday decoration, event and recipe that I can cram in.
Instead of a cookie baking frenzy, (I will bake some cookies, mind you!) I’ve been putting together a home management binder that works for my life and my brain. I didn’t understand why they were necessary until I had kids and then, gosh, I realized I needed something that could hold all of the things I used to hold in my head.
In the long run, life will run smoother for us. We’re still quite festive at our house. I’m just keeping things in perspective.
And, I’ll be browsing your recipes for Christmas dinner inspiration. I’m making a change this year. We’re doing a big Christmas Eve dinner and eating leftovers and a few special dishes I’ll have prepared ahead of time so I can actually spend the day playing with the kids and their new toys instead of in the kitchen preparing a meal. I want our kids to remember fun holidays that were centered on family.
Any special plans in the works for you? Enjoy the dishes shared today! And, thank you for being here!
