Holiday Brain

Holiday Brain

Hey y’all I’m back and here to stay.

It’s been a hell of a ride but we made it….holiday season! Tis the season for family events, giving, and drinking, amen. If you have a loved one, someone special, or even a pet really you know how fun it is to shop till you drop for them. Let’s be real…isn’t the goal to make someone cry? ;) Wow, I now realize that is something rather sadistic to say but hear me out, I mean it in the nicest way possible.

I love to see someone shed a tear at my gift, because to me that is the ultimate “thank you”. It means I know them well enough to have struck a cord and really made them happy on an emotional level. And aren’t the holidays all about being emotional and sh*t? All the adorable Christmas movies on Netflix are definitely corny, but don’t tell me you don’t shed a tear each time that Christmas is saved!

Well December 1st hit and we finally got a tree, yay! I’d love to share a photo but a naked tree is nothing to behold. Gotta love Amazon, waiting for some decorations and we’ll have this baby up and running in no time. In the meantime, I got some twinkly lights and candles, lots and lots of candles.

Stay tuned for my next blog post, some Christmas gift ideas!
