You Have to Smile

First of all, as I write, I am currently 8 people away from having 20,000 views on this blog. Twenty. Thousand. For some bloggers, that's not much - but when I started this little blog nearly 4 years ago, I never expected it to be what it is. I never expected blogging to become such a huge part of my life - between this personal one, and my food blog, I've had so much fun and met so many people and talented other bloggers along the way. So here's a thank you to all of my readers! I can't wait for the next 20,000.

Today is about appreciating the little things. As Christmas is fast approaching in less than a week, the last-minute gift shopping and wrapping can get in the way of remembering why we're celebrating, and how valuable this little season is for bringing family and all sorts of people together. So whether you're volunteering, celebrating, or hosting a family gathering - take a minute to really notice how wonderful it is. You simply have to smile.

Even if your head gets chopped off in the family Christmas party photo.
