It is so easy to get swept up in the chaos of it all this time of year. Christmas is so close. Our out of town family is arriving in a matter of days! It's crazy and exciting and I get so overwhelmed by all that I have to do that I can very easily forget to actually enjoy my favourite time of year. This year I'm being extra mindful not to let that happen. My boys are happy and healthy and even though - I'm not pointing fingers - but even though one of them has been keeping us up all hours of the night with his teething woes, Chris and I couldn't be luckier (or more tired).
Tonight, after tucking the boys in, I sat on the couch and enjoyed a giant mug of decadent hot chocolate topped with way too many homemade marshmallows (tis the season!) and now thanks to the dark chocolate caffeine + sugar rush I'm up later than I should be (it's barely 10pm, but see note above about the teething baby and the extreme sleep deprivation) so I thought I'd take advantage of this rare night time energy to paint my nails (check!) and to pop in and remind you all that even though the big day is only a week away... don't sweat it, hug your babies, see your friends, make time for what matters, you can catch up on sleep next year!
