Journal Your Christmas Dec. 1st

I basically just took my blog post from earlier today and used it as my manifesto for Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class. Here is my album cover along with my manifesto page. TFL!


December. How can one word evoke such warm, cozy, and wonderful feelings and at the same time make me feel anxious and stressed? I know I'm not alone with these mixed emotions; the secret is to find balance. For me, a list helps to keep me in check and to stay organized. So this year, in addition to my December errand/chore list, I'm making a list of a few of my favorite things to keep me calm, relaxed and enjoying this Holiday season. After all, shouldn't we be enjoying this wonderful season? :)

My List

1. Listen to Christmas music
2. Make and drink hot chocolate (loaded with whipped cream, of course!)
3. Sit by the fire and play board games
4. Watch Christmas movies
5. Bake treats and deliver to friends
6. Scrapbooking (you had to know this would be on my list!)
7. Play in the snow (hopefully!)
8. Drive around the town to see Christmas lights
9. Treat myself to Starbucks anytime I'm near the mall
10.Be sure to tell my family & friends how much they mean to me and that I love them.
