Movie Monday: Christmas Movies.

Christmas movies might be my favorite part about the season… besides the decor of course. I SHOULD have done this post sooner, but I got slammed with work, and ya know what, shit happens. I also considered scrapping it altogether but then I had a mostly free afternoon Saturday, and I found myself curled up…

Music Monday: Christmas Edition.

Is there really any better way to get into the Christmas spirit than to listen to Christmas music? No, I don’t think so. I’m a firm believer in waiting to stay blasting it until after Thanksgiving but then after that anytime is fair game. When you’re cleaning, when you’re cooking, (especially when you’re baking Christmas…

‘Tis the season to give back.

I’m really big on giving back whenever possible regardless of the season, but around the holidays I get especially into it. Whether it’s the salvation army buckets, toy drives, or merely paying or the coffee of the person behind you in line, giving back is what the holidays should be all about. It’s heartwarming giving…

Twenty-Six.

Do what makes your soul happy.   I carried this quote with me through all of my 25th year. I made a promise to myself that I’d remember to do more of the things that I loved no matter if people didn’t understand them, or thought they were dumb. And that’s exactly what I did….

Why I Love The Holidays.

  When most people are asked what do you love about the holidays? Or what their favorite part is most would probably say the presents, or the time spent with family, family traditions, you get the picture. We’ll my answers a little different. I don’t have that typical family dynamic anymore. No get-togethers on Christmas…

Take that me time, you’ll be thankful you did.

A few weeks ago, my mom, my sister, my brother and I, took a last minute two-hour drive to Rhode Island for the weekend because we were craving the beach. This mini trip was important because regardless of the fights that occurred because that’s what siblings do and the leftover anxiety I was filled with…

“Take me to the Beach” -Said Me, Daily.

A few weeks ago, days before October we headed off on an impromptu weekend trip to the beach. Sounds crazy right? Well, it kind of was. We had made a choice to try to get to the beach at least once a year since in our former living situation that wasn’t a possibility or let…

12 Days of Christmas: Christmas Movies!

I am obsessed with Christmas Movies. Everyone makes fun of me when I get super excited when they come on. When I said in my first post that I celebrate Christmas like a child, I was NOT kidding. When CBS or Freeform puts out their holiday line up I get overjoyed. I think because I’m…

Joys of the holiday season!

I think everyone has their own true meaning of Christmas. I’m not a religious person, I never have been, so for me Christmas isn’t about religion. You celebrate how you celebrate and I’ll celebrate how I celebrate. You celebrate Christmas? Great. You celebrate Hanukkah, great. You celebrate something else? Great. You don’t celebrate anything at…

25 Things I’ve learned before turning 25.

I haven’t been handling this turning 25 thing tomorrow very well. I’m not sure why. I mean my body feels beat up like I’m 80 but other than that, deep down I know 25 isn’t the end of the world, so why do I keep feeling like it is? I still don’t know. Since my…
