I feel like November 1st came and suddenly everyone’s Christmas trees were up and social media was/is flooded with all things festive and wintery. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas. Big fan of it over here. But I’ve always struggled with it really feeling like Christmas before the snow falls (I blame growing up in the prairies and being used to snow in October), and without it feeling like Christmas I’m not in the mood to throw glitter around my house, string up lights, and crank up the Christmas music.
But now that I’m on the blogging train I feel like I have to start posting Christmas things because everyone else is doing it. Self inflicted, grown-up peer pressure – it’s a thing.
I once read somewhere that if you’re in a bad mood make yourself smile, and keep smiling, and eventually you will get happier – or something like that. So maybe thats how I will convince myself to get in the Christmas spirit. Get out the egg nog and just start throwing that glitter around :)
But first, going back to that quote up there about balance, here is my last non-holiday post. A bunch of cool things I’ve found around the internet this month. Enjoy!
