Happy Hump Day and 10th day of December, everyone! Did I just say 10th day of December?? I can't believe we are almost a week away from Christmas Vacation and picking the Mr. up at the airport. I am so excited and feel very overwhelmed at all there is to be done before all of the fun begins. Speaking of all of the things that need to be done, one of my favorite bloggers shared a post about slowing down during what many see as the busiest month of the year.
Wow! Well said, right? She poses the question, What are some ways that you will try to slow down your December...
Despite the recommendations of this blogger, I've already sent my Christmas cards, hosted a giveaway (more of that below), I get up a little earlier every weekday morning and help No Name get into mischief, and am hosting and participating in a December Photo Challenge which is enough to keep a person in constant action. I've been thinking about this for a few days and have decided that my effort to slow December down for my household, is going to be all about altering my state of mind rather than the actual doings. While I have a lot on my plate at work and at home, I am going to chose to remain calm and find happiness in the small things. I am going to choose not to sweat the small things, do the best I can, and stay in constant search of those aha moments that remind me of why I do all that I do. A smile from Cam, playing Christmas music while I work on an always so stressful IEP, an impromptu dance party to Cam's favorite... "Shake It Off," or cuddling up to watch Cam's other new favorite "Grinch." These are the moments I will grasp to in an effort to fight for a slower December. Now I pose that same question to YOU! Do you have any ideas on how to make sure we aren't doing TOO much that we miss something special? :)

May all our Decembers slow down enough for us to enjoy the special memories that will be made.
