I think we can all agree on one thing…2020 has been a complete and total shit show, and I don’t know about you, but I am ready to bring in the new year like my life depends on it. I mean, this year can’t get any worse, right? At least we all have the holidays to look forward to.
It’s finally acceptable to blast Michael Buble’s “we wish you a Merry Christmas,” watch all those cheesy Hallmark movies you have been eagerly anticipating all year, and divulge in what I am sure will be 20 pounds of gained hot chocolate and cookie weight. I am definitely not speaking from experience…
I see you judging me, Stacy!
Let’s hope 2021 is better. I don’t think I can take another year of sobbingly stuffing myself with homemade banana bread & cookies.
All jokes aside, I do want to say how grateful I am to have my family with me & healthy this holiday season. I know many people aren’t as lucky, and my thoughts are with them during this difficult time. If you have the means to donate, I recommend checking out this resource for a list of legitimate organizations that could use your help or research your local community food bank and consider donating there. Every dollar helps a family in need during this trying time.
So now that Christmas is right around the corner, you are probably in the process of getting your tree and dusting off boxes of baubles that your grandmother has stored in her attic for the last 50 years. This year, since travel has been devastatingly canceled for pretty much everyone *excuse me as I grab a piece of banana bread* I wanted to put together a travel-themed ornament roundup because traveling virtually via ornaments is possible, right? and decorating the tree is the best part of Christmas besides the baking and food of course.
