As we tick off the list the things we need/want to do during December, we begin feeling overwhelmed. I am trying to take more joy in each thing I do, rather than a "must-do". That list seems to get longer  -- teaching classes, making gifts, decorating,  baking, then getting Christmas cards designed and printed. I try to remember each is a gift to someone else who will hopefully bring a smile and some Christmas-cheer to the recipients.

The "busy-ness" of this time of year includes events to attend. Wow! There can be so many sometimes! This year I am eagerly looking forward to each one because it's a chance to spend some time with special friends, and meeting new people. 

We are enjoying old traditions and making new ones, including plans to attend a Christmas Caroling event in our town this month. Main Street will be closed late on a Sunday afternoon.  Our Rochester Main Street, here in Michigan, is already aglow with each storefront covered (literally) in Christmas lights. Each one looks like a colorful gift box!

The plans for the evening include entertainment, reindeer, chestnuts roasting, and lots more activities, including songbooks for everyone and caroling! Are you making new traditions this year?
Wishing you the happiest of Decembers!

Merry Christmas and Blessings in the New Year!
