Holiday Attitude Adjustment








I absolutely love Christmas, but isn't funny how bi-polar the holiday's are? I mean, half the time we are in the "holiday spirit" and it is an extremely positive thing, almost euphoric. The other half of the time we are rolling our eyes, saying, "goodness, look what the holiday's do to people". It's really crazy to step back and look at the chaos that ensues over what is supposed to be a joyous celebration of Jesus' birth, family, and warmth. I was shipping some packages yesterday and I will admit, I kind of lost it, the holiday spirit that is. The Christmas lights that seem to be wrapped around my heart lately flickered out for a moment. I got really impatient with how slow people are. In reality, these people were just enjoying each other and sharing a little snippet of their lives with one another. The problem was that I didn't build enough time into my schedule for sharing and caring yesterday, when really that should be part of every day, regardless of the holiday's. By the time I got to my mom's to watch a girly Christmas movie, my holiday spirit had flickered back on, and I made the decision then to not let those little lights dim anymore this season and to do a better job at building warmth and love into everyday, even if it is only for a moment and only for a stranger. 

It has been freezing here (by San Diego standards) this week, so I took it as the perfect opportunity to wear this beanie. It is so cozy and perfect for those days when you probably should have washed your hair but decided not to. This outfit is awesome for how busy we all are during this season with gift shopping and running errands. You can never go wrong with an oversized cardigan and some Chucks. I love how comfortable a pair of boyfriend jeans are and when paired with this cozy ensemble a light wash is perfectly acceptable for the winter. 

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week.
