My Favorite Week

We’re in the middle of my favorite week of the year–the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Why do I love this week so much? Two big reasons stand out. First, life screeches to a halt. No one plans much during these days. No one screams for your attention. There is much staying at home and relaxing, especially since my husband usually takes the week off from work.

All this “down time” leads to my second reason for loving this week–getting ready for the new year. I love to plan out my goals. To set my budgets. To clean up my files and my house. To dream. To get ready to start fresh. For both of these reasons, this week serves me as a long, deep breath before we plunge into our regularly scheduled days once more.

See y’all in 2016!
