December 2022 – As you’re reading this email, I will be baking in the sun with a book in one hand and a cold beverage in another, on a Florida beach. I am officially skipping Christmas this year.

I know this is going to be an unpopular opinion, but here we go ….

Xmas is overrated.

There are so many other holidays I prefer over Xmas (hello Thanksgiving & Easter). Xmas, with it’s excess of planning, food, and décor, not to mention the occasional cranky guest, feels like just another event production project. Except I am required to do it for FREE!

Xmas is just not my thing.

This is as Xmas-y as I am going to get this year.

Instead of wishing you all Merry Xmas, I am instead wishing you a month filled with people, places and things that SPARK JOY (wherever and however that may be)!
