It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and start the holiday season.
Christmas songs on the radio, stores are stocked with gift items, movies and specials are on tv, and peppermint mochas are available at your favorite coffee shop. The holiday season has officially begun. Are you ready for it?
I don’t get into the Christmas spirit until after Thanksgiving. One holiday at a time please. But after Thanksgiving then I am in it 100%! It really is my favorite time of the year!
The day after Thanksgiving is Black Friday…ugh. I want nothing to do with it. I would much rather stay home and put up my tree and stay out of the chaos. Cino loves when the tree goes up so she can play and sleep under the tree skirt.
Stores decorate inside and out so you get to see beautiful decorated windows such as this one while you’re out & about. (My mom took the photo in Indiana a few weeks ago. I did some editing.)
The seasonal drinks…they are heavenly! I’ll probably get a Peppermint Mocha sometime this season but right now I am pretty hooked on the Starbucks Chestnut Praline Lattes with coconut milk. Mmmm, mmmm good! Do you have a favorite seasonal beverage?
There is baking cookies too. Next weekend I will be getting together with some friends so we can get our Christmas baking underway.
Yes, the season is definitely on its way! Unfortunately sometimes this time of year can also bring stress, depression, and chaos. So let’s not forget to slow down and enjoy.
Happy Sunday (and Happy Beginning of the Season)!
