Let the Feasts Begin

I'm kind of a holiday geek (Wes loves it)  but this year is really stressing me out.  For two reasons:

1. Last year, we were "in transit" and I didn't have the opportunity to release my Holiday Energy in the familiar ways such as decorating and light-hanging.  So this year feels like two years compressed in one.

2. There's one less weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. 

Therefore, I'm ridiculously happy this week.  Thanksgiving dinner at the Farm is quite possibly the best thing ever, and then I got to follow it up with a day of dragging the family to Home Depot for fresh garlands and a tree?  Life doesn't get better.  Oh wait, 98.7 FM is playing non-stop Christmas music.  Seriously.  I'm so happy.

Oh, the yummy food.
