'Tis The Season


I spent last night watching 'The Grinch' - the old school one, with grainy film and that adorable dog Max.  It has to be one of my favorite Christmas movies and the message is perfect.  As I was running around this morning doing last minute errands I stopped and looked at all the madness around me.  

People were literally pushing each other out of the way to get to the register first.  It makes you rethink how you approach this time of year and to try and remember what this holiday is really about - and it has nothing to do with plastic toys and maxed out credit card bills. I consider myself so lucky to have the opportunity to go to Bali this year and couldn't ask for a better gift than the chance to travel but even as I'm boarding that plane I'm grateful that I get to spend the holidays with J's family and our Boston friends that are meeting us over there.  I'll miss my own family back home but I'll be with them in spirit and will happily re-live the memories and traditions of my childhood Christmas's...

As I said before, I hope to post during my holiday but if something goes wrong and I can't get my hot little hands around some free wi-fi then consider this a wish for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! x
