I know I know. Most of you are probably thinking, “Christmas?! We’re weeks past Christmas!” But this girl still misses that Christmas feeling. I’m thankful I married a man that likes to keep our live Christmas tree up usually through the month of a January. So I still have that little Christmas spirit lingering in my home. (And if you’re wondering, yes! I do still plug it in every evening.)
I miss the sparkling decorations and the cheerfulness that so many carry with them through the holiday season. The big build-up as I like to call it. I feel like in some way, with Thanksgiving being so late this year, we were some how cheated out of some of that Christmas cheer. I want to continue to watch Christmas movies and listen to Christmas music. Does anyone else experience a weird music slump this time of year? After Christmas it’s really hard for me to get into the groove of listening to anything else. I mean, I can’t go from Michael Buble’s “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas” to “You Need To Calm Down” on the radio! The only solution I’ve come up with is listening to The Family Stone soundtrack which is just the score. No lyrics, no blatantly obvious Christmas tunes, just a good movie score.
I also really notice how my focus shifts after Christmas. I want to have that focus on Jesus and His story the whole year through. That’s something I want to really work on this year. Staying in constant communion with Him.
I’m really just typing out my thoughts at the moment, and I’m still just kind in that Christmas blues fog. I’ll snap out of it soon, I’m sure, but right now I really just want to get my kindle out and finish that Christmas book I didn’t get finished in time. So maybe thats exactly what I’ll do. 😉
I want to make a point to pop-in on here more than I did this last year. I miss having this creative space. Also, I’ve started the year off with a couple of good books and movies already, would reviews be something you’d be interested in?! As always, I’d love to hear from you, and thanks for sticking around! ♥️
