This year we didn’t put out the Christmas tree, or take Sky to see Santa. I thought we must set out time and do those 2 things to make sure we were all in for this holly jolly season. But then I became a little overwhelmed with my to-do list, both in work and personal life, so I decided to simplify it. I focused on the most important things instead.
I guess Christmas is about being joyful and that’s more important than keeping up with decorations and other traditions. However, there was one thing that I really wanted to do. So we did it. We took Sky to the tree lot and captured some gorgeous photos of her. She was so curious and wanted to touch all the trees with her little fingers. She was happy and delighted.
We got other stuff done at last and now just have to sit back and enjoy. We’ll probably turn on the fire at the fireplace, sip a little cocoa and watch our favorite TV show. All in all, we’re so grateful that we have each other to enjoy this holiday season.
