It’s the beginning of December and I can feel the “bah hum bugs” starting to erupt. One of the things about being the occasional stylist is that I find myself more often than not thinking about holidays several weeks if not months before they actually start. Christmas planning started in September and decorating commenced in October in tandem with Halloween and Thanksgiving. The poor kids that visited my house on Halloween were confused as they saw a house with split personalities – garland on the staircase, pumpkins on the stoop and a horn-of-plenty on the kitchen island. It all read like a case of Hoarders: Holiday Edition and I am positive I may be the source of one child’s “decor PTSD”.
It all came to a head during Thanksgiving when I found myself in a post- turkey haze thinking about Valentine’s Day decorations. WHAT?!? I am in a perpetual state of “holidaze” and it needs to stop for my creativity and sanity! So I am front loading the blog up with some amazing posts on food, decorating, holiday gifts and some very special libation made exclusively for me by two fantastic mixologists (check by tomorrow). In addition, I have a special holiday fashion feature I will be sharing to ensure that the man in your life stays on your nice list this year!
I am pushing hard to ensure that when Christmas does roll around, I will be all set and ready to kick-back and relax. And that is what I wish for each of you this season, the opportunity to sit back and relax! Cheers…..
