If you watch my Instagram stories, you probably saw that we put our tree up the day after Thanksgiving. One of my favorite things about the holiday season is turning on the Christmas tree lights first thing in the morning and enjoying the peace and quiet with a hot cup of coffee before everyone wakes up. I should just sit there and enjoy it, but I usually have my laptop open too, responding to emails and getting work done. Or online shopping…you know, only the necessities. It would be probably be more serene if I didn’t have a glowing screen in front of my face but we both know that’s not going to happen.
