One. Last weekend before Christmas is here and I'm not at work! Have you all gotten tired of me saying how much I love not working on weekends?? And the fact that my cold came right in time is perfect. Because I can snuggle all weekend with my husband and kitty and nurse this cold. That's excitement.
Two. No last minute shopping for me. Hallelujah! We gifted ourselves with a treadmill so we decided on no Christmas presents this year, just a stocking. And the other gifts have already been purchased. Go me!
Three. #FireworkPeople. There aren't the right words to even describe the level of encouragement, support and love from this group. I joined their facebook group a few weeks ago and kind of stood in the back. On Tuesday I decided to participate in their Twitter chat and within ten minutes I felt so uplifted and encouraged. When I posted in the Facebook group I received comments on my blog post about sharing my idea with #fireworkPeople. I am telling every woman to join this group. They support you, answer questions and cheer you on even if you are a total stranger.
Four. This time of year is bittersweet for me. I've always loved Christmas and it's Christmas right? But it also reminds me of family and how mine has changed so much over the past 5 years. I miss my mom so much some days. Grief is a tricky thing. It shows up when it feels like it, uninvited. But it reminds us how far we have come and just how much we should be thankful for.
Five. New Years resolution Swap! Word on the blog this week is the launch of this swap. Want to encourage someone in the New Year to achieve their resolutions? Or just want to make new friends? Then this is a great opportunity! Put together a little "resolution" box for your partner and encourage them. Made it really easy for you, sign-up below!
