Ahhh ahhh ahhhh! This is honestly the first year that I’ve actually felt the infamous “holiday stress”. And I don’t even understand why! I started my Christmas shopping back in August and am not even decorating or hosting parties. But for some reason I just feel so constantly anxious like I’m struggling to catch up with everything.

Eyes on the prize.
It’s been a struggle to chill out and just enjoy the present lately. Tuesday my mom was in town and took me out to dinner, so that was a nice little break. But I just feel like a mental/emotional wreck these days and am completely exhausted from the weekend. It was literally non-stop (but definitely fun). Saturday night we hopped on a friend’s boat for the Mission Bay Holiday Boat Parade- which was awesome!- and Sunday the weather was gorgeous enough to read at the beach for an hour before making granola for gifts before hitting my first ever Ducks game!
