“Finding Balance with Christmas”
I understand that some people really love Christmas, and I don’t want to take that away from them.
Christmas can be a fun time of year when the whole family gets together, snuggles by the fire, exchanges thoughtful gifts, and makes memories;
and that is a beautiful thing.
I grew up celebrating Christmas and have fond memories of it.
If you love the holiday, I think that is wonderful!

If you are one of those parents, this blog is for you!
