Are you ready? Yikes! I can’t believe that Christmas is in less than 7 days. I only just got my three live trees decorated this past weekend. I actually scaled back from last year. I’m down to a total of five trees including one glass and one permanent (a nice term for fake) from last year’s six. It is still way too many and I’m heading out of town next year to avoid all the hoopla . . .
Looking forward to a quiet holiday. A friend and I were planning to travel to Sedona for a few days between Christmas and New Year’s but reconsidered as we both have much too much to wrap up on the business front and want to enter 2007 ready and primed! I even forwent my annual holiday bash this year, just no time. How does everyone do this? I mean all the holiday hoopla on top of regular full time work and careers and family etc. It seems extra crazy this year.
Shopping made easy! Well, I found the antidote to holiday shopping madness. Since mall is a four letter word for me, and I am often shopping as a way of earning my living, the last thing I want to do is spend lost hours looking for impossible to find gifts and more. The solution beyond the wide world of the internet and shopping at my desk, is combining this sometimes arduous task with a delightful lunch with a friend and a shared bottle of champagne! You have no idea how much fun Nordstrom can be when you find a gifted sales professional and can enjoy the glow of good bubbly.
May your holidays be full of good cheer!
Live well and beautifully, MG
