If you’re like me, then you’re already gearing up for the holiday season. For some of us, it’s a marathon of events, shopping, and a glorious amount of food. For others, it’s about time with family, community, and a sense of cheer and wellbeing. However you may feel about the rapidly approaching Christmas music blasting in the grocery store, the holiday season is meant to bring people closer together! Here are a few of my favorite holiday tidbits and events for this year:
I’m sure many of us are feeling an array of emotions when it comes to sending our kids back to school this fall! For some, this is simply what they’ve been doing and their children have been attending in-person with Covid-19 restrictions in place. For others, attending school might be a first-time experience.
Not to mention the whirlwind that is starting a new school year. We have to buy supplies, get ready for the rigorous schedule, and prepare for all the after-school activities! So how should we get ready?
No matter where you live, things are bound to have changed during the time of the pandemic. I feel incredibly fortunate to live along the Front Range in Colorado, where there has been an heroic effort to promote public safety while continuing to find creative ways to connect.
If you’re like me, you typically plan your year around one or two big trips. For my family this has in the past consisted of a short holiday visit home to England around Christmas time (since it’s my favorite time of year) and a summer trip that’s a bit longer. This time always provides invaluable rest and relaxation, but it also presents educational opportunities for my kids and chances to make lasting memories.
