Over the last few years, for me, the Christmas season has become more of a chore than a celebration. Really cannot pinpoint when this transition happened.... but it did.
This girl was all about decking out the house in all its red and green glory.... even the bathrooms had Christmas cheer. (I still love Christmas and all the decorations, just not in the mood to do it!)
So......is it age that has quieted my Christmas enthusiasm? (Honestly, the thoughts of having to put all that stuff away kind of makes my stomach hurt.)
Or is it because I want to simplify?
It does seem that my idea of celebration has changed over the years. Before....I had convinced myself that the only way everyone would feel like celebrating was if I had set the stage properly..... the house had to look like North Pole exploded in every nook and cranny.....
Now.... not so much.
Instead of decorating my house with glitter bombs, I want to fill it with laughter, music and yummy smells.
AND if everyone shows up in a glittery, shiny, red and green Christmas sweater...... that would be PERFECT!
