How on Earth is it already the end of November? It feels like just days ago I was bidding a fond farewell to October and getting ready to travel into NYC for Halloween, and now here I am- bundled up in fleece blankets- preparing for December! I couldn’t think of a better way to end the month, however- what with tonight being the 4th annual “Friendsgiving” at my friends’ apartment and the mid-season finale of “The Walking Dead” (prayer circle for Carol!)
In contrast to this time last year, this past month has been considerably busier- what with settling cases for the end of the year at work, organizing the office, prepping plenty of posts for the blog, and getting ready for the holidays. I’ve barely had time to stop and take a breath for more than a few minutes at a time- which probably explains why November has flown by so fast.
Busyness aside, November did have it’s fun moments- with what little down time I could find being spent with family, friends, or on my own while out getting some fresh air and taking in some rural scenery. We’ve been getting snow on and off for the past few days, too- which has helped me get into a festive state of mind. I’m ready to start decorating for Christmas, write out holiday cards, bake some cookies and pick out some presents!
Of course, while I’m excited for Christmas, I’ll also be starting to wrap up 2014 and preparing to welcome 2015 over the next few weeks, too. I’ve already began piecing together my end of the year summary and drafting my resolutions in an attempt to stay one step ahead of the game- so we’ll see how it goes.
December will most certainly be hectic, for sure- but I’m looking forward to it!
