Happy Monday! (The only way a Monday that started in the 6am hour can be “happy” is if a short week comes after it in my opinion). 🙂
You’d think with all of the sleeping that occurred yesterday (slept until noon, eat, nap 2-4, gym, eat, sleep) I would have been tossing and turning all night. Not so – I was out like a light, and woke up feeling completely refreshed (but another hour or two of sleep would have been welcomed with open arms!)
And even though San Francisco has decided it’s appropriate to put up Christmas lights, trees and massive ornaments (I’m looking at you 101 California Street) on November 21, I choose to celebrate November for what it really is –
my birthday month Thanksgiving!
I love all things fall – apple cider, falling leaves, crisp cool days, gathering together for a Thanksgiving feast with loved ones, and everything that comes with it! Winter lasts far too long, so while I love to celebrate the holidays, I like to wait until Thanksgiving has come and gone before I go all out with my decorating.
(That’s not to say I haven’t fired up the *Nsync Christmas Pandora Station, because I have. But everything else will have to wait until December 1… or November 28. Because when Thanksgiving’s over, it’s over, right?) And then you bet I will fully embrace and enjoy every single Christmas decoration I can until January! Our apartment will probably be fully decorated by 8am on Monday morning.
My Spiced Chestnut candle has about .4 inches of wax left to burn. It’s sad really – we’ve had such good times together over the past month.
Do you like to get the Christmas decorating started as early as possible? Or are you a wait until Thanksgiving is over kind of person like myself?
