Six Tips for Staying Sane During the Holidays

Thank you to Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post!

I think most of us love the holidays, but the season doesn’t come without it’s share of stresses and trigger points.  This time of year is festive, joyful and fun at best, but at worst, it can be lonely, stressful or downright depressing.  I’m not immune from experiencing every one of those feelings at some point.  I credit my faith, family, and keeping a positive attitude for not letting the ‘down’ moments ruin the holiday season.

Just (the best) Sales!

Thank you so much for the sweet comments on our simple holiday decor this year.  I didn’t go as all out as I have in year’s past, but I love it just the same.  Sitting down tonight in a clean house with the warm glow from the Christmas tree while sipping hot cocoa brings easy contentment.  Ah, it really is the simple things.

And today, we’re back to our weekly collection of sales!  How are you doing with your holiday shopping?  I’ve gotten a start, but still a ways to go.  Jordan and James sat down with the Target catalog yesterday and circled all their wishes.

How in the world are we almost to December?! This year has seriously flown by and November was no exception.  I have gotten our Christmas decor up and can’t wait to show you!  I even bought a few gifts yesterday so I’m feeling good!

This month I’ve had a lot to be thankful for. November is always a time to reflect on what and who you love most, but this particular November was really special for me!  Thank you so much for your genuine enthusiasm over the Gibson x Glam holiday collection!  You have no idea how thrilled I am that you love it as much as I do!
