Although I love to relax on weekends and snuggle up with my fur baby, I also love to feel productive by completing all my tasks. My query about my new article has been sent to the editors. My photo shoot for the Great North is done. Now, all I have to focus on is Thanksgiving. Needless to say, I’m happy that my “to do” list on my phone is getting shorter. We all have that list on our phones. Every day, but especially during the holidays, I thank God for Siri. I don’t know what I would do without her reminders during this busy time. Do people still write reminders down? We can just as easily put our fancy phones to work for us!
Even though it is not officially Thanksgiving yet, there is a festive holiday air flowing around. Yesterday morning, my husband and I completed our holiday grocery shopping together. Ever since we have been married, we have gone holiday shopping together. This year, we implemented a few changes in our tradition: we changed our menu.
I hear you! All of us are going to be super busy cooking and entertaining for most of this week, but even if you don’t have a whole hour, it is important to get some exercise.
Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. We had such a great day! Yes, he was born the day before Halloween. Can you believe it is already here?
Children love Halloween. They are going to be busy celebrating this holiday with many different activities, such as going door-to-door Trick or Treating, carving a pumpkin, visiting haunted houses, or attending costume parties. Tonight, Claudio is going to help us give out candy.
Growing up in Italy, Halloween was not a thing at that time. We only saw it on TV, when Dad and Grandpa watched American movies.
I can’t believe how fast time goes by. It seems like, just yesterday, we were busy celebrating the 4th of July, and here we are at the end of October already. Please, Time, don’t go so fast!
I know that Christmas is still a couple months away, but I’m happy to share that I have already started Christmas shopping. I have always disliked shopping in a crowded store. I always remind myself that planning accordingly during the holidays will keep the stress level low.
If you are taking your little ones out tonight, have fun. The time with your family is priceless. Stay Zen!
It is one of the best and most mindful activities. Everyone should do it every new season. Getting rid of old clothing in your closet must be one of the best feelings ever. Even if the item is not that old, or if you just have not worn it in a while, it needs to go. Remove it from your closet. The feeling is great. It is like letting go of old memories
What is it about fall that makes everyone happy? Maybe it is because the holiday season is not that far away.
“The happiness you feel is in direct proportion to the love you give.”
