I feel I almost enjoy Christmas now more than I did as a kid! I love this time of year, where everything is geared toward the cozy and cuddly, the time for candles, warm blankets, woolly socks, and obviously Christmas.
Things often get so hectic around this time of year, overwhelming Christmas sales, stressed out shoppers, business people trying to wrap up business so we can enjoy some well-deserved downtime over Christmas, while at the same time scheming for the New Year and trying to fit in ALL THE PLANS…
So this year I wanted to consciously make room for the fun stuff. I love all the little rituals that come with this time of year, the lights, the decorations, the family time, the annoying Christmas music… and this year I want more of that. So I’m dedicating more time this December, to actually DECEMBERING.
Here’s a list of some of the things I want to do this year to celebrate this season, make the most of family time, fulfill myself creatively and get all the good Christmas vibes.
- Get Advents Calendars
- Buy an advents wreath

What are you guys doing? Fancy creating your own list for some December love?
I’ve created a free PDF you can fill out on your computer or print out if you’re like me and enjoy crossing things off on paper 🙂 Download yours here, no opt-in required. And share yours with me – I’d love to see what other people are up to (and maybe steal some of your inspiration – feel free to steal anything off my list).
Have a great December!
