LOVING | my new mug(s). (I got a total of 4 new mugs over the holidays and I couldn’t be happier!)
ENJOYING | the 2nd Christmas holiday. Because it’s a holiday in Germany and everyone should get not one, but two holidays for Christmas. Period.
EATING | holiday cookies and scones.
DRINKING | my first cup of coffee in 21 days. Hallelujah.
WATCHING | holiday movies. They’re my favorite. So far, I’ve managed to see quite a few classics, but I also found a German holiday mini-series on Netflix that I am still hoping to watch!
READING | Ugh. I was reading “Normal People” by Sally Rooney and then my loan expired and I wasn’t finished. Now I have to wait to be able to borrow it from the library again.
HOPING | that you all had some good times with your family and friends over the holidays, and also
WISHING | I could have hugged some of mine.
THANKFUL | for all the friends that sent Christmas cards and little packages in the mail this holiday season. It really made the holidays that much sweeter!
ADORING | all the Christmas decorations in the neighborhood.
SENDING | Christmas cards and a few packages. You must know that wrapping gifts and putting together little packages is probably one of my most favorite things to do around the holiday season, but most of my Christmas gifts were ordered online this year, because the added cost of shipping is just insane (especially when sending overseas), but also deprives me of the gift wrapping part.
KEEPING IN MIND that not everybody looks forward to the holidays because people have strained family relations, or are far away from their loved ones, or or are generally stressed by the holiday expectations. I see you. Do what feels right.
What’s going on with you currently?
