O my gosh, guys! Tomorrow is CHRISTMAS EVE! This seems to be the theme with almost every “event”, “holiday”, “milestone”, but this is just too soon! I’m not ready! I just got home and could use a few more days to settle in and breath. That’s why I’ll be taking next week off (except for one post mid-week?!) from blogging. I’m pretty excited about it and know I won’t be the only one stepping away to regroup before the new year.
I can’t believe the semester is done and I’m actually home after all these months! The house feels totally foreign and I take forever to readjust! I only have about 4ish weeks home though, this break is not a long one. I’ll take what I can get though! So cheers to the holidays and I hope you have the most merry, happy, and love-filled Christmas (or other holiday)! See you all when I see ya! xoxo
