Poor Thanksgiving. I swear, it's the red-headed step-child of the holidays. Now, don't get me wrong. I love the festiveness of any holiday, but it just seems that commercialization has finally won, and Christmas is being celebrated the second the last trick-or-treater has ventured home to look over their loot.
In our home, Mr. B and I love to have our pumpkins and fall decor out until Thanksgiving Day. It's a time I like to pause before the craziness of the Christmas season begins. In fact, it's a reminder to me to slow all things down. So often, we get busier and busier with our lives; but the thing is, we only get one life. And I want to make sure I enjoy each and every part, without feeling pressured to hurry up and enjoy the next big thing, It's not about judging when you put up your Christmas tree; it's about slowing down and being present regardless of what others may suggest we do.
P.S. I love you, Thanksgiving! May you stay alive forever! xoxo, B
