Yes, I’m dressed up like a Christmas tree because…why not? Don’t I look sexy? Oh yeah…
How are your holidays going?
Mine are going well so far considering that it feels more like summer than Christmas time.
This is one of the best Christmases I’ve had ever.
Why? Because I ditched the whole “I’m supposed to feel nostalgic” thing and just enjoyed the things I could.
Yeah, so a lot of my Christmases have really sucked for me. Combo of a hard life and untreated depression. Listening to any Christmas music that is supposed to conjure up awe or nostalgia… it’d just make me feel sick. Then I’d feel worse because I didn’t feel the warm fuzzies like I was supposed to…
I’m sure many of you can relate. The holidays aren’t always the easiest.

I love yarn crafts AND Star Wars! What a great combo!!!
My new dishcloths express well how I felt receiving the gift:
If your holidays are sucking and I haven’t yet cheered you up maybe this will (it gave me a good smile):
