Happy Hanukkah, early Christmas, belated Thanksgiving and even Happy Festivus!
Despite the rain and gray skies, I totally love the holiday season: all the pretty lights everywhere, cookie exchanges, hot chocolates, scarves and mittens, getting time off work…oh yeah and of course spending time with friends and family too 🙂
I’ll admit it though, my dislike is the gift giving.
I am pretty darn awful with gift ideas and it totally stresses me out. I always want to give presents that are thoughtful, personal and something the recipient wouldn’t get themselves. So then I usually fail at coming up with ideas and then give presents a month or two late. Whoops. (Case in point: it is the 6th night of Hanukkah and I have yet to get my brother, who lives on the other side of the world, a gift. #fail. Sorry, Marshall!!)
