Enjoying the Holidays

Posted Dec 03 2013 9:55am

I hope that y’all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Hanukkah if you celebrate!  Ryan and I lucked out and enjoyed two Thanksgiving feasts this year because my younger brother accepted a new job at Steamboat Ski Resort so my momma flew out to help him move.  According to the resort’s website, their motto is “work hard and play hard” – I have no doubt that he’ll be loving life!

Thanksgiving 2013

The past couple of weeks I’ve…  Spent quality time with my family and friends, celebrated Ryan’s birthday, enjoyed whipped cream in my morning coffee, been fortunate to have many work assignments, consumed lots of Thanksgiving food + leftovers, saw a handful of movies, and have been participating in Elf for Health !  Life has been good.

That said, I’m behind in blog posting and reading.  The only time I’ve skimmed through Feedly has been while I mindlessly ride the bike and simultaneously watch The Food Network.  I should mention that it’s a stationary bike, ha!  Can you imagine seeing someone on the street riding a bike while looking down at their iPad or Nook?  I joke but I bet it’s happened.

One article that I thought was worth sharing is “ Why The Holidays Are Great For Your Blog ” published on The SITS Girls blog.  Gigi shares some great points, number 4 stood out to me the most…

I do it every spring – I take a step back from blogging and social media.  It’s nice to disconnect, focus on things that I may have neglected, and recharge.  I don’t feel like I need a break, but I do want to enjoy all of the holiday festivities that take place this time of the year.  Like bake dozens of cookies, decorate our apartment, drink copious amounts of eggnog, laugh the night away with friends, see the Winter Walk of Lights at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, pick out a Christmas tree, and whatever else may arise.

What I’m trying to say amid of the rambles is that my posts may be sporadic.  Life will go on.  But I invite y’all to connect with me on Facebook , Instagram , Pinterest , or Twitter – sharing via social media is easier than blogging :)

Question:  What’s your favorite holiday cookie?  I was invited to a cookie exchange party and need to bake 6 DOZEN cookies!

Question:  If you blog, do you plan to take a step back this holiday season?
