Sprint To The Holidays

It’s that time of year….

Where we run around at high speeds (in some instances we’re crazy enough to attempt it in high heels), masses of lists clutched with a death grip in our white knuckled fingers. Gifts to buy. Parties to attend. Food to prepare. Surviving the holidays with our sanity, our number one priority.

But isn’t a holiday, by definition, a leisurely time away from work devoted to rest or pleasure? What if we all make an effort this holiday season, to enjoy the things around us a little more? Take a few more deep breathes. Stop for a minute and admire the lovely Christmas decorations. Sing along with our favorite Christmas song. Smile at our loved ones.

If you, like me, need a little “reminder” of how to survive the next few weeks, without getting short of breath sprinting to the holiday finish line, here’s a little list to add to your pile. Keep it on top and read it often.

Those of you wanting the details on #4, read on…

Festive Cranberry Margarita

Source: me

  • 2 C Tequila of your choice
  • 1 1/3 C Cranberry juice
  • 1 C Cointreau
  • 2/3 C Fresh-squeezed lime juice.
  • Combine everything in a medium sized pitcher and stir to combine. Pour into glasses (rimmed in sugar if you please) and garnish with a few frozen cranberries. Now sit back, enjoy the company of your loved ones and move to the next item on the list (see #5 above).

  1. Fantastic Info! But I???¨º?¨¨m having some trouble trying to load your blog. I have read it numerous times before and in no way gotten a thing like this, but now when I try to load a thing it just takes a bit while (5-10 minutes ) after which just stops. I hope i don???¨º?¨¨t have spyware or a thing. Does anyone know what the difficulty might be?
