Even though I don’t celebrate Christmas, I like the good spirit that surfaces in so many people (it probably helps that I don’t have to deal with the crowds in the shops) and I just love the parties, joining other families for Christmas dinners (and I’ve gone to midnight mass a few times over the years), and oh…the food and the cookies and the reasons to stop and spend time with family and friends.
And while I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s Eve, because of the pressure of having a boyfriend, or husband or partner (…and I always seem to be in a dating wormhole around the holidays)… since I’ve had my daughter, there is nothing I like more than watching the ball drop in NY and then cuddling up with my getting-bigger-all-the-time-little-girl.
So before we all tear off into the frenzy of the holidays, I’d like to wish you, my friends, and family, and all the readers who have become my online “family” a very happy holiday season. You are all in my heart. Thanks for your interest and support all year long.
