On the first day of Blogmas, my true love gave to me-
Wait, scratch that. I don’t have a true love yet. Unless maybe I can count myself?
Today marks the first day of Blogmas, a holiday event for bloggers to post something every day of December up through the 25th all in dedication to one of the biggest joys of the year – Christmas. While I’m slightly exhausted from NaNoWriMo last month, I figured I’d take the dive and see how I’d fare doing Blogmas for the first time. I have a few of my posts planned already for Inbetween Thoughts, but I’m kind of wandering around blind for my own personal blog at the moment (don’t worry, that will change soon).
With Christmas just around the corner, December ends up being a rush excitement to find the perfect gifts, plan out trips, and decide what dishes to bring to the family dinner. But there’s a ton of simple things that make the season so wonderful – the perfect hot chocolate and the mouthful of whip cream that you inhale with your first sip (is that just me?), the twinkling lights that seem to reflect the wonder in your eyes, dazzling holiday outfits, and the simple joy of being with loved ones.
So, as I move forward into the month with Blogmas and celebrations and traditions, I want us all to remember to embrace the little things – to not get lost in the chaotic mess that can sometimes occur when trying to prepare for the holidays. We deserve to be happy, too!
Expect a lot of fun topics to spread throughout the month – gift ideas, outfit inspiration posts, DIY crafts, and maybe some recipes (though I’m so not a cook). If you have anything that you want to learn or hear about specifically, let me know and I’ll see if I can work it into my publishing schedule.
