Happy Friday from sunny Florida!
As I mentioned yesterday, I am in Sarasota for my sorority little’s wedding, and could not be more thrilled to be a part of her special day.
This year, I am seemingly more in the holiday spirit than last. We buried my Nana at Arlington National Cemetery two days before Christmas Eve, and I think that was more emotionally draining than I realized. This year everything seems lighter, and of course with a wedding of a dear friend, and a few more on the horizon, it only adds to the fun.
I am one of the few lucky ones who will be at work until the 23rd, but then I have 10 days of uninterrupted freedom! I’ll be celebrating Christmas Eve with at my Aunt’s house, sneaking in some family time in North Carolina, and checking off some items that have been on my to-do list for months—like cleaning out my computer!
I hope you all enjoy and savor the last weekend before Christmas. Can’t wait to hear what you’re up to. xx
