If you follow me on Instagram, you have a pretty good idea that James and I love Buster the boxer very much. Despite the fact that James is a hobby photographer, I don’t love having my picture taken. Those two things combined resulted in us having a dog Christmas card that features Buster in our front entrance (the rest of our house is equally festive!).
After losing my dad, Christmas has lost some of its magic. We normally spend holidays at the cottage, but our contractor is starting our renovation much later than promised (without providing us an update, but that’s another story) and we weren’t able to rejig our plans in time. So, this year we’ll be in the city for the holidays and we’re not super excited.
It would be very easy to get down in the dumps, but I’m doing my best to avoid the holiday blues by adopting an attitude of gratitude and being present. James has taken over as Chief Christmas Officer and he’s doing a great job getting me and my mom into the holiday spirit (check out my baking and gift guides for proof).
I’m not one to make new year’s resolution because I believe you can make positive changes at any time and not just when the calendar changes. However, since this year has been a tough one and I’m actually craving a new beginning, I’m going to take the opportunity to make new year’s promises (no one keeps resolutions) and stick to my goals.
Stay tuned and I’ll share what I’m planning to give you some inspiration. In the meantime…
Dog Christmas card: happy holidays from Buster!
