Happy Sunday evening to all of you! I am currently back in my apartment after a day of traveling — all unpacked and managed to clean the apartment, too. When I set my mind to do something, I really like to follow through and I knew that I would feel much better about the week coming up with at least a clean apartment. Does anyone else ever get into cleaning kicks? Now I’m ready for some take out and television..
I also took down the Halloween decorations and put up a few Christmas decorations but I am waiting for Britt to come back so we can put up our little tree! Can’t wait! Do you all like to decorate for the holiday’s? I’m debating on getting a few more decorations but I’m sure the apartment will feel more complete once our tree is up.
I’m really trying to get into the ‘Christmasey’ mood but am having a little bit of a tough time this year — it’s so weird to not have my grandparents around during this time of year and I miss them so much. They really made our Christmas’ perfect. I’m also definitely going to miss my childhood home (which is in Rockland County, NY) this Christmas! My first one not spent in it… however, there are new memories to be made. Maybe once I start wrapping gifts and watching some more Christmas specials my holiday spirit will brighten up Any suggestions?
Before ending this short but sweet post, I found some really wonderful and positive quotes on Pinterest lately that I’d like to share with you. They’re related to everything — attitude, love, work, outlook on life. If you can relate to just one of them, I suggest writing down on a piece of paper to read back to yourself when you’re having a tough time. Can’t hurt – only help
I hope you open your eyes to all of the beautiful things around you this week. It is so easy to get caught up in the schedules and rushing — but remember to keep your heart and mind open to the lovely little things that surround us.
