Ready, Set, Go!

Sixty Seconds with Judi

It’s here! You know that time of year that is supposed to be ringing with cheer and good will to all men. But, instead we seem to put ourselves into a frenzy of shopping and constant worry about what to buy Aunt Mary. Well I say STOP! Let’s slow down this year. Keep things simple. Let’s bring back tradition instead of trying to cram it into our schedules.

I have a plan this year and I am going to do my best to stick to it. First, it’s okay to say no! We don’t have to make every holiday party or participate in every secret Santa that we are invited to.

Second: Make a list and check it twice. Hey if it’s good enough for Santa, it’s good enough for me. I don’t have to buy for everyone. Again, and I will remind myself of this over and over, keep it simple! Let’s face it most of your friends or family would be just as happy with a small plate of cookies as they would be with another gift that they don’t really need. So write your list and stick to it!

Next, enjoy time spent with your family and friends. Start your own traditions; begin with taking the family out to cut down your own tree! What a lovely way to start your Christmas or holiday season. Enjoy the hayride, let the kids’ help you pick out the tree and then relax and roast marshmallows while we do the work of preparing your tree for you.

Now, I know this one is hard for some of you; let the kids’ help you decorate. The house does not have to look like professionals came in.

Remember to have fun! Crank up the Christmas music, bake cookies with the kids and visit the family. And if you still feel the need to buy for Aunt Mary remember, we are still here at Linvilla to help you find that perfect gift.
