Happy day! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend and that your turkey hangovers are wearing off. We hosted a slew of people on and off for the last four days and then dove back into some laundry room projecting so it was definitely a good mixture of fun, relaxation and a little work tossed in there too.
But now it is time to really start thinking about Christmas and the New Year! Time to pull out the Christmas Tree, count down the days, drink endless cups of cocoa, decorate, shop, give, party, cook and bake… sigh… Just typing it all makes me a little exhausted.
In the past I would try and be an over-achiever and “do it all”, but I really wasn’t enjoying the season and just found myself stressing and by Christmas morning I was almost too tired to see straight. It completely took away from the whole point of this time of year and after a few years in a row of over-committing, I had a reality check. Especially being so deep in the world of blogging with Pinterest-pretty decor around every corner, it is easy to fall down that “be all the things” trap.
With that in mind, Megan’s tips today are spot on! I love her perspective for heading into the season with priorities in check. I would really love for you to chime in at the end and share how you be sure to really soak in these final days of the year as well.

My name is Megan and I am a lawyer by day, design and decor lover by night, and Mama to the sweetest two children. I’m passionate about fitness (and chocolate!) and could not live without my relationships, girl talk, and my morning coffee. I’ve been blogging for years over at Honey We’re Home, sharing my love of keeping things organized and beautiful at our house. My efforts to live in the moment and cook more are an adventure in progress.
