Merry Christmas Y'all

So many things I wanted to show you, tell you, and do but alas too little time - always next year!! We're here in tundraville until the weekend and then off to Texas to see friends and family.  I'm looking forward to some warmer weather, texmex, barbque, stocking up on Central Market Tortillas, taking in the Austin christmas lights, doing some vintage shopping at Feathers and strolling Soco.  What will you be up to?  Austin has a great New Year's Eve Celebration called first night (pefect for the little ones too)  New Year's Eve Austin Hippie Style....  Hope you and yours are having a wonderful holiday!!

Next year I'm keeping this little list in mind:
 (via Blooma Blog)
Be in charge of your holiday season. Don't let other people or advertising medium impose their expectations on you. Keep in touch with your deepest feelings.
• Keep it simple. You arrange the pace and space. (So important for keeping your kids sane, too!)

• If the loss of a loved one, financial troubles, or any serious anxiety surround you this holiday, make the season as simple and as positive as possible for yourself.

Holiday Bill of Rights:

• You have the right to take care of yourself: eat right, exercise, and get enough rest.

• You have the right to mixed emotions: happy, sad, frustrated, guilty, afraid, and thankful.

• You have the right to solitude—for planning, thinking, reflection, introspection, prayer, and relaxation.

• You have the right not to accept party or dinner invitations.
