I cannot believe how quickly this month has passed! Christmas is only a few weeks away but I'm doing my best not to feel frazzled. I've always felt that the best way to not only survive the holidays but to enjoy them as well is to take things slow and simple. If attending numerous events, hosting huge parties, and buying tons of gifts stresses you out, DON'T DO IT! Celebrate how you see fit and you'll have a wonderful time.

I work for a large retail chain and was asked yesterday to help assemble and decorate two Christmas trees for the store. I love Christmas but my first thought was, "Already?" I haven't even hosted my annual Halloween party yet! Fall is short enough and we jump through it to get to winter, Halloween is rushed through and poor Thanksgiving is nearly forgotten. How on earth can we fully enjoy each holiday if we are constantly looking ahead to the holiday after?
I know this topic is not by any means a new one, but really, can we please celebrate one holiday at a time, please?

A few days ago my father and I took my niece and nephew to a playground. It was one of the largest I'd ever been to so the little guys certainly were enthralled by it's bright colors, slides, swings, and climbing apparatus. While there I noticed something about the parents of other children. They didn't seem to want to talk to anyone other then their kids or other adults they knew. One little boy was wearing Bobba Fet shoes and I commented to his dad how awesome they were. He ignored me. Why the rudeness? Is it paranoia? It's not as though I spoke to the child. I've noticed this behavior before with some parents. What's up with it?
It was still a wonderful time though. We will have to return.

I came across this delightful doll at a local antique mall and flea market. I'm not one to be afraid of dolls so I was drawn to her gorgeous dress. Of course once I picked her up, her eerie blue, blinking eyes unsettled me a bit, as did her askew wig. If I was filming a horror movie she would certainly be one of the props and yet there is something so pretty about her too. Perhaps it's the faded beauty that is so eerie, a reminder that no matter how lovey something is, it will fade in all but memory.

I have my one ideas as well, ideas on fashion, travel, a woman's place in the world. I hope any reader who finds this is inspired to live as God plans, not as others tell them.
