Pin It Tuesday: Christmas

I have got Christmas on the brain. I think it is in the air. It is starting to get colder at night, a definite sign fall is on its way. There is something about the anticipation of getting through December and enjoying Christmas day. I enjoy the feeling, smells, and overall experience. I always put too much pressure on myself. Did I buy enough? Did I buy too much? Why didn't I make that new cookie recipe? Did I spend enough time doing this, doing that... Oh the stress! However, I love it.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
