Christmas Schmistmas

I hope yours was too. I got to spend Christmas with both of my sisters for the first time in about twelve years. Very Cool.

I missed my Awesome Teenager, who was with his Dad's family, but we will have him all to ourselves next Christmas. Ah, the logistics of blended families :-)

Christmas is weird, isn't it? So much build up, so much preparation, then it's over. I love the time with family and building of special memories for my children. But it makes me sad when it's over and everything goes back to normal....

I am not doing that resolution thing this year. I wish I was that friend of my sister's who said on Facebook, "I don't wanna change my body or my life this year, I am satisfied with everything I have." How cool would that be?

But I AM going to try to be kinder to myself.

During Suger's Confident You  series a few months ago, I wrote "Be kind to yourself. You are awesome" on our bathroom mirror in eyeliner. I am going to try and read that each day and actually believe it. That's all.

Oh, and you are too. Awesome, that is.

  1. Goodness me I love you chick, you're damn awesome. So glad you had a fab Christmas with your sisters, so special. No resolutions here either other than to let life play out organically rather push, push, push for it and deadlines. X

  2. Love your photos. Glad you had a good Christmas with your sisters. I didn't make any resolutions either - can't stand them - instead I made plans to achieve some goals !!
    Have a great day !
