I made it! It was touch and go, shopping Christmas Eve day for last minute gifts and my daughter's Christmas Eve outfit. The cards went out just a couple days ago but, hey, they went out. Nothing was fabulously done this year, but we succeeded in filling the squares and finding some down time. We had a nice visit with my parents. My mom, daughter and I spent countless hours cuddled in bed in the guest room watching one HGTV show after another while the guys watched a continuous stream of sports in the family room. We had lots of snow over these holidays, so it felt like I had permission to be holed up in the house. I even perfected a Peppermintini and a St Germaintini. I had every intention of publishing them for you, I even took the pics, but I just didn't get it together enough to get a blog done. Well, I'm ahead for next year. Now we just have my son's birthday party this coming weekend and getting all the holiday decor cleaned up, and I think I may see the light at the end of this 12 month tunnel. My one resolution this year is to stress less. I don't know how successful I will be. I fuel my tank with stress but I can't do another 12 months like the last. I've never been one to do the resolution thing either, so... we'll see. Wish me luck, divine intervention, whatever...it will take every means possible.
It wasn't all play time the past couple weeks. I have spent the last two days at my computer putting together my Decorati shop and portfolio. The endless hours working on this furniture line have finally made it to fruition. So, please check it out. The button is at the top left sidebar. I'm off to try my luck at this de-stressing thing. I have my fab bath waiting for me.
I'll let you know if it works out. PS we really need to talk about this Antonio thing on HGTV now that I've been inundated with the commercials.
