I’m Calling This My Pre-emptive Holiday Sanity Management Blog. Which Sounds Better Than ‘First Post in a Fairly Long While’.

It’s November 20. Which means, friends, that we are just on the verge of holiday madness. Every year, just before Thanksgiving, I swear that I am going to Martha Stewart the heck out of the last five weeks of the year. Not in a manic, crazy, perfectionist way. But in a “how can I slow down […]
