Hopping Through the Holidays

Hello and Merry Christmas!
Between parties, gift wrapping, baking, shopping, and the traffic of all the last minute shoppers, I am beat. I went to at least five different stores yesterday and was out for four hours shopping. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE shopping. But with Christmas just a couple days away, all I want to do sleep and watch Christmas movies. Actually I want to try to watch as many Christmas movies as possible this year, especially the ones I haven't seen yet. So far I have seen: Elf, Love Actually, and 12 Dates of Christmas. While three movies may not be a lot, it's more than I typically watch during the Christmas season, but I intend on watching more soon. 

In the season of celebrating, I hosted a party the other day. A very laid back party because like everyone else, we have all been very busy. But to keep up with my busy life I baked at least 50 chocolate chips cookies, about 25 sugar cookies, and a lot of chocolate flowers. I was exhausted following the party. But I feel like many are always exhausted around this season because of the hustle and bustle or the season.

May your Christmas be Merry and Bright
With Love,

Let's Start at the Very Beginning

A very good place to start...
I've been through than I care to mention. Stuff that is too personal to speak of (especially online). But when  I was younger I went through an experience that I would never wish upon someone. I was young at the time and never really got the chance to heal properly. I healed but the wound still opens every now and then. 

More recently however, I had hit what was the lowest point I had ever been at. I may or may not be depressed. I was never actually diagnosed with depression but feel as such fairly often. Regardless I am seeing someone to help through this time. 

I have always lived inside my head. This has been for as long as I can remember. I've always wanted to be a princess and live the life of a fairy tale. Though I am aware that this is unattainable, especially in this world, I try to make the world as happy of a place as possible. I have come to the conclusion that if those around me are happy then I shall be happy as well.

I hope to fill your days with my thoughts and the things that fill my days. Perhaps you may find them as enjoyable as I do. 

With Love,
