i have always put up two trees;
one in the family room and one in the dining room.
this year, with a few more responsibilities on my plate,
and a few less days between thanksgiving and christmas
i found myself a bit overwhelmed with all that i wanted to accomplish. a few unanticipated obligations put me into “crank mode”. i was not enjoying the season and those around me were enjoying it even less.
nope, not going there!
today i gave myself permission to let go.
and you know what, those favorite orange ornaments look just as lovely in a big bowl on the dining room table as they would have on a fully decorated tree.

DONE! think i’ll go have a cup of tea.
