I’m Bringing Mistletoe Back.

Tis the season to be kissed…well anytime really. Remember those awkward moments of standing under the mistletoe with someone you didn’t want to kiss?….Yeah ,me neither. I am usually aware of them. It’s kinda like high school, getting stuck dancing with the guy you do not want to be dancing to “Stairway To Heaven” with. You’re aware but you don’t want to hurt their feelings (yep I’ve been there). I’ve realized over the years that there is a game with the mistletoe. You can dodge it, slide around it, OR purposely dangle one over your crushes head (I like this option). And I’m not saying you have to lodge your tongue down someone’s throat….I’m simply saying a simple peck is all you may need. Although I do prefer a smooch. – CS xo

I love this time of year, especially when the Christmas tunes start playing. And I’m not talking about the Black Eyed Peas latest remix of “Little Drummer Boy” (please tell me there isn’t one). I’m talking about the oldies, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald…sure Dolly Parton too! I look forward to the lights, the Wish Lists, getting together with friends for Christmas parties and connecting with family.  Last night I was doing a bit of cleaning and I came across my Santa Gumby! WOW! I can’t even tell you how much I love this guy. I’ve had him ever since I was a baby. My grandparents gave him to me. It always sat on top of their cupboard. It had been given to me last year….after all these years and this gumbyish figurine makes me smile all of the time. I could be crying about something and all I have to do is just  look up  at Santa Gumby sitting on the ledge minding his own business and I smile………yes it’s the little things that make me happy. And yes….I’m still a child at heart. What’s your favorite Christmas decoration? – Christina XO
