Seems like the years have just been speeding up more as I accumulate a larger number of them. This coming January my oldest will be officially a teen-ager. In summer of this coming year my husband and I will have been together 20 years, 18 of them married.
And now Christmas is less than 10 days away.
Every year I think, I will be more prepared for the Holiday season. I will have my cards all ready to pop into the mail the day after Thanksgiving. Or at least by December 1st. After all this time I think I need to admit, at least to myself, that just isn’t going to happen.
Instead, I get to be human. Sometimes I pull things together rather miraculously and I’m as surprised as anyone else. Other times I’m lucky if my personal goals are even 1/3 finished by the deadlines I’m working with.
Instead of being “perfect” like part of me still wants, I’ve decided being “realistic” is a far happier goal to shoot for.
Oftentimes this means constantly re-evaluating what I can make happen and how much time I actually have to work on projects. Whether those are projects for my work as a designer/writer/teacher/artist or as a mother/wife/household manager.
In interest of that I’m taking the rest of 2015 off from the blog and will be on the rest of my social media quite a bit less. I wish all my lovely readers a very Happy Holiday Season and I’ll be back on January 1st, 2016.

Get the cards in the mail the day after Thanksgiving? At my house, it’s now cards? What cards? I hope you’re having a lovely Christmas with your family.
