I wanted to share a little plan I have for the blog this month. There are so many expectations for the holiday season: happiness, cheer, beautifully wrapped gifts, Pinterest-perfect cookies. The list goes on and on. But, we all know that expectations can often set us up for failure—and even put us in a Christmas slump. The truth is, this month isn’t always cheery, magical or even happy for everyone. For some, it’s hard and for all, it’s inevitably busy. My blog pageviews each December tell me that you barely have time to read a two-minute blog post. We’re all consumed by the doing and the going that comes along with this time of year.
So, for the coming month, I’m expanding on the “design simplified” theme of my blog and will be focusing on ways to make this crazy, busy season a little easier so that we might even stop, breathe and be merry for a minute or two. You can expect quick posts where I’ll share easy decorating tips, stress-free gift ideas, holiday projects that require very little time, and some really good giveaways. I’m already breathing easier just thinking about it :)
What’s one thing you’re doing to simplify the season for yourself and your family?
