It's Friday Celebration time with our dear host, Viklit. As always, click the link to sign up and see the full list of all the awesome bloggers participating.
This week my celebrations are:
Christmas Parties! We had our usual potluck at work yesterday and I ate so much I spent the rest of the afternoon in a near coma. Tomorrow is the company-wide Christmas party where I will again be eating way too much. And in case all that doesn't put me into a diabetic coma we've got our karate potluck scheduled for tomorrow night, complete with the most ridiculously fun version of Pollyanna gift-giving I've ever participated in. Awesome.
Christmas! It's only a few short days away and I will be spending those days wrapping gifts, baking up a storm and trying to soak in every bit of the wonderfulness this time of year can offer. I hope to take a brief break to go see the new Hobbit (cause how freakin' amazing is that gonna be?!) but other than that I'm in full-on holiday mode. The key to this time of year, I've learned, is to be as present in the moment as humanly possible. I know that's a good thing to practice in general, but especially now when things have the potential to pass by in a whirlwind. So I will do my absolute best to pick up all the sights, sounds, smells and feelings of this wonderful and wonderous holiday, and to be grateful for every single minute of it.
