I'm finding it impossible to conjure up any genuine Christmas spirit this year. This might have something to do with the fact that my house is filled with the essence of sunscreen and chlorine rather than pine and cinnamon. I'm a lifelong Californian, so Decembers filled with sunshine are my norm. However, I can't recall a single year when I actually broke a sweat trimming the tree while my kids splashed in the pool. I don't mean to rub road salt in the wounds of my Midwestern friends. (By the way, it's 83˚ here). I could honestly use a little winter right now! Wouldn't you know the year we decide to skip our Wisconsin trip to my husband's family, the Heat Miser decides to crash my Christmas. Maybe I'll throw the brood in the car for the 3 hour drive to the snow. Then again, a tan would really look great with my Christmas party dresses...
In the continuing effort to feel the spirit, I'm sharing this absolutely magical Skating Party, hosted by Kate at Beautiful Days. Talk about a Winter Wonderland. Enjoy! And keep warm, or stay cool, wherever you are.
