I’m not sure why I’m surprised that the year seems to fly by, but I am and it does! Do you have the same feeling?
I have memories from childhood about going out with my parents and sister to get our Christmas tree — we really did go into the forest to find the perfect tree for the holidays and then haul it home to put homemade decorations around it. I’m pretty sure my mom still has many of those decorations on her tree today. 🙂
Since you’re probably gearing up to enjoy the holidays with loved ones, I’ll keep today’s post short — yet (candy cane) sweet.
Although we don’t have the big Christmas celebration that we had when I was a kid, I still love the idea of giving gifts and taking time off to reflect on the year.
That’s why we’re going to revisit some of our most popular posts then enjoy some time away until the New Year (we’ll return in January with new videos!)
Here’s why we’re doing this.
1. For me, the holidays are a great time to catch up and set new goals for the New Year. In January we have some changes happening around here to make your experience on the site even better; Motivation Monday videos will be moved to Wednesdays, and I’d love your help naming the series so check out this video below and let me know your thoughts.
