merry christmas, i think...

You want to talk about it? You know, that elephant in the room...the fact that it doesn't feel anything like Christmas to me. I keep waiting for "the Christmas spirit" to infiltrate my body as easily as seasonal allergies, but I keep coming up empty. I don't have a tree or lights. I haven't turned on any Christmas music. I skip over all of the Christmas movies. I haven't even wanted to shop. And, if you haven't noticed, I completely tanked on keeping up with those Christmas gift guides I promised all of you. Eventually, I'll be able to come clean about why I've been so unplugged. For now, suffice to say I am experiencing a paradigm shift of sorts. I look forward to spending time with family this week, and I am eager for the renewed focus that 2014 promises.

You know me. I just like to be honest with you. I'm not sure there is an actual recipe for Christmas spirit, but if there were, I imagine it would look something like this:

  • A dash of this holiday isn't about you, Jordan.
  • A house of happy, healthy family members.
  • A table of food for which I did not pay and am glad to eat. 
  • And maybe vodka.
Kidding, kind of. 

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas - however you so choose to define it.

    I love your honesty.

    I'm just now catching back up on the blog world, and I'm definitely going to be staying tuned.

    Go, you.
    Whoever you want you to be this year. Cheers to real!
