🎁 Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons, Pretty Exhausted
"I can see the light. I hope it's from the Twinkle Lights and not stress-related."
I hope this message finds you amidst the festive rush, perhaps with a cup of something warm and a moment to breathe. I'm right here with you, navigating the pre-Christmas whirlwind. You know the drill: trying to sprinkle a little holiday magic for the kiddos, keeping the business wheels turning, and, of course, dealing with those sleepless nights (courtesy of my energetic four-year-old and the ever-welcome “end of school” cold who decided to join the party).
I'm sharing this slice of my life not to complain but to paint a real picture behind the glossy facade we often see on social media. It's like revealing the messy kitchen behind a perfectly plated dinner, right? You all are like friends to me, and in this space, I feel like I can be my genuine self. Isn't it somewhat comforting to know someone else is also frantically ticking off their holiday to-do list at the eleventh hour?
