Picture by me
I feel a little ashamed to admit the real reason I am posting today, while I could do so since January 2nd when I came back home from our little vacation. Hopefully some of you might join my minority group and loudly express the wish to hold on to holidays a little more, contrary to what everyone else is feeling and writing in their blogs, making me look strange.
Every year this time I feel so sad about how people are so quickly over the holidays, the lights have no magic anymore and the decorations seem to be covered in dust. Suddenly everyone wants to start a fresh year with super goals and healthy habits.
While for sure I like to be a better person too, I kind of want to keep the sparkle alive for a few days more. I am not ready to say goodbye and wait until next November to feel like a little kid again. I still have the lights on in my bedroom and I look at the decorations with love. Maybe it is the fact I spent half of December traveling and I didn't take my time to enjoy my home's warmth as I would like. We still say "Happy Holidays" and try to eat desserts around here.
Tell me please, do any of you feel like this? Or do you feel the need to forget the holidays and get back on track as soon as possible?
I have a ton of work ahead of me, but with a little left sparkle on the background, everything seems so much sweeter, doesn't it?
Here are some links to help you gather all is left from the magic around you and hold it tight :)
I hope you spent the last days of 2012 doing lovely things and I wish that 2013
has a ton of blessings for you and your families :)
