I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. Even though it was a difficult one after Fridays horrible event, I consciously took the much-needed time to slow down to truly enjoy the simple and small moments with my family – I hope you got to do the same. I, like many of you probably did, watched the news and the memorial services and felt so sad. It is heart wrenching to see innocent children and heroic teachers taken from this earth way too early. As a parent to a child that is the same age as those no longer here, it’s unfathomable to comprehend the pain that is felt by all the families, friends, and community. My prayers, thoughts, and condolences go out to all that were affected.
It’s hard to believe Christmas is only a week away. Whether you’re still in the midst of the shopping frenzy or are completely finished, it’s almost time to wrap.
I love pretty, colorful designs on wrapping paper, but often can’t bring myself to buy uber pricey paper since it usually ends up torn and in the trash. It’s kind of a waste of money – don’t you think? Yet, I think the wrapping can be just as special as the present. So what do you do? Well, be creative and wrap up a pretty package that is unique and personal, but doesn’t cost a bundle.
