Last Christmas I had an advent calendar for Turner, decorated my entire house, did tons of holiday themed activities, and hosted a Favorite Things Christmas Party for my closest friends. This year I was lucky enough to get a tree up and decorated. I'm taking it easy this year, and that's OK.
Deep inside I so badly want to host a holiday party, go all out with decor and bake Christmas
treats (or try to), but in this season of our lives I can't. Well I can, but life wouldn't be very pleasant. The stress is not worth it. My three kids + my full time job + blogging keep me VERY busy, so I have to be very picky what I choose to say yes to. And right now I have to say no to things I wish I didn't have to. Next year could look a lot different who knows, although two almost two year olds sounds like trouble!
Being intentional with my time is more important than ever right now. For someone who likes to do EVERYTHING...this is hard. Are you like me? What have you had to say no to this year? We did manage to squeeze in pictures with Santa which is the very first time we've ever done that (thanks to a blogging promo).
