Normally, it is with sheer delight I embark into the holiday season. I typically have my Christmas shopping near completion, my Christmas cards in the works and all my gifts shipped by mid December. This year is decidedly different. I am pairing down my to do list, trying to focus more on the real meaning of Christmas and making a conscious effort to spend my time doing more meaningful things. Although, we have a handful of events to attend, a couple excuses to get all decked out and long list of Christmas movies to watch I will do my best to not get wrapped up in the frenzy of the season.
