The Holiday Season

There are so many emotions that come with these end-of-the-year holidays — Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s.  It is such a time of reflection, for me at least, that it can make it difficult to be fully in the present moment, because I’m so stuck in my head thinking of previous holidays and enjoying/wanting to cry at the memories of them.  Does anyone else experience this holiday nostalgia?  I feel like it is a universal thing, at least I like to think it is.

We had a wonderful Christmas.  It is so, so fun having kids at Christmas.  I remember as a child (oops, more reflection) thinking it was so weird that my parents didn’t care about getting presents — they always said they had the most fun watching us open stuff.  I get it now.  It is the funnest.

2015 was one for the books.  It was such a challenging year for me, for our family, in a wide variety of ways.  And challenges aren’t always bad; good things can be challenging too.  It feels cheesy to say, but having made it through all of them has been really empowering for me, which was not something I expected.  I am looking forward to the coming year, and all of the new challenges and adventures.  Life is so weird and beautiful and weird.
