Christmas Prep

I'm a total sucker for Christmas time.  I do so love Christmas! Maybe it's cause I've spent many Christmases in hot third world countries, where I felt virtually no Christmas spirit. So now that I'm back in whimsical Italy where the streets get decorated, where it gets cold outside and stays toasty inside.....I don't know, it's virtually impossible to not feel festive and decorate a month early.  

Clearly Travis is a Christmas enthusiast like me. Here he is breaking out in song as soon as we started decorating the tree.

Making life easier

I have had to press the delete button to a lot of drafts lately. The one reason is that when I feel the urge to write it's usually about something that bothers me, or that somebody who happens to make my blood boil. As women, we tend to be very repressed, we don't want to be labeled crazy, so we repress our anger, sadness or frustrations-  It's no wonder we become that angst y, passive aggressive person that puts smiley face after every reprimanding letter, just to take the edge off the swing. We close our mouths and finally blow up and get downright bitchy.
