Hello 2020

December went by far too fast, as it does every year. I hope that you all had a safe and fun New Year’s Eve. I am thankful for the memories made, the lessons learned, the blessings and the struggles that 2019 brought. I pray that this new year brings you all love and happiness!

Now that the holidays are over and things are slowing down a bit, my goal is to get back to blogging regularly. I’m trying my best to get through a depressive episode, so it may take me some time to get back into it. Thank you for being patient with me and sticking around. Lots of hugs to you all.

With love,

Merry Slothmas!

Every year since I was little, my mom would get me pajamas that I could open on Christmas Eve (Christmas Eve jammies) and I would spend all day Christmas in them. Well, here I am almost 32 years old and guess what…the tradition continues😆! Of course, now that I’m older and have a family of my own, things have changed a little. My little family celebrates Christmas with my mom and bonus dad on Christmas Eve, so now I get my pjs a little early so I can wear them all day Christmas Eve. My husband is now part of this and she gets him a pair as well. We of course get our kids theirs, and hopefully they willl carry on this tradition when they have their own families.

Now, my mom knows how much I love (am slightly obsessed with) sloths. Yesterday, she stopped by and had me open my jammies early….

Do you know how tempting it is to put these on right now?! I promised I would wait until the 24th.

I kid you not, I squeeled and jumped up and down and did a little happy dance right in the middle of the street. Oh, we were out in the street because my family has been sick lately and Mom was trying to avoid the germs by staying outside (I don’t blame her), ha.

Safe to say, this simple tradition (and sloths) easily bring out my inner child and brighten my mood. Between being sick, and the usual ailments, I really needed this. Thanks Mom, for keeping this tradition going and for “getting me”!

And there’s one more thing she brought for me…😄

I would love to know: What are your Christmas traditions? Are there any that bring out your inner child?

With love,
