As I’ve mentioned before, I home (Florida) for the holidays and it makes me so incredibly happy. I love my family… hard. So, the fact that I get to be here for 18 days straight is the greatest gift I could ever receive. Bonus, my boyfriend is also here for an extended time which makes things even better.
Here are 10 things I’m looking forward to this holiday season.
Being home with family and loved ones
Putting up holiday decor
Eating delicious food
Getting scuba certified
Going to fave spots in Miami
Gift giving & wrapping presents
Being away from work
Celebrating the birth of Jesus
Being away from snow (Bye, Ohio…)
I hope your holiday season is magical and filled with happy moments. If you can open your doors to someone who may not be surrounded by loved ones, do it. I’m sure it would light up that person’s heart.
I know, I know… the first day of winter isn’t until December 21 but let’s be honest fall left us a bit ago and we’re well into freezing weather. Here are a few things I’m planning to tackle this winter season.
It’s a new year! Crazy to believe it’s officially 2018. I like fresh starts and I like taking the time to reset and get refreshed. So, after a few weeks of vacation and a little introspection I’m ready to start the new year. This year, I decided to do something a little different. I spent some time reading my Bible and really checking myself- asking myself some tough questions and perhaps some things that I had ignored and put off in 2017. A word kept popping into my head and as I prayed, I realized this might be the thing I need to focus on this year if I truly want to become a person who is constantly growing and becoming better. This year’s word is EASE.
In the moments I’m overwhelmed, I’d like to rest in Him. I’d like to hold onto His promises and know that He’s got it and that I can chill out and not have everything figured out all the time.
If you like resolutions, have at it. If you like goal-setting, do it. If you want an intention, a theme per se, for how you want your year to flow, then maybe take a few minutes, hours, days to find that one word.
