Busy. Good busy. But so busy.
We’ve been buying presents, reorganizing the apartment, running errands, walking back and forth to school, wearing coats and hats, decorating the tree, and making cookies. I don’t think I’ve enjoyed a holiday season this much in a long time, and that probably has something to do with us all being at home this year. No traveling. No being apart. No rushing. No crazy schedules.
It could also have something to do with living in New York, where the smell of chestnuts is on every street corner. I think this city rivals the North Pole as the center of the Christmas universe.
I’m thankful for the best December in years.
I’m also thankful to be busy writing some online posts for my favorite hometown website. Oh my goodness how I’ve missed deadlines and work. It feels really good and productive. You can check them out here, here, here, here, and here.
Told you I was busy.
I hope you’ll take the time to check out the website in general, as there are some really great ways to donate or help good Arkansas based organizations over the holiday season.
In the mean time, happy Christmas you guys!

So glad that you have your work ( which you do so very well ), your family and your Christmas Spirit. My husband just mentioned yesterday that he misses the charter bus trips we used to take to NYC at Christmas time. Merry Christmas to you, Jane and Dates🎄🎄
Apparently Fayez autocorrects to Dates, who knew?
A merry Christmas to you and your family. Would love to see pictures of your apartment when it’s finished.
You are right. I was in New York City last weekend it was wonderful Best Christmas season for me also. Merry Christmas I enjoy your writing
You always make me feel something….your writing has power…it makes me feel….When I read your posts or articles it feels like I am sitting at the kitchen table with a friend talking about life…you do that…So thank you for making me think…for making me feel….You don’t know me from Adam but I have followed you for years and seeing the woman you have become is absolutely amazing..so keep writing and know that there are so many people who are reading and questioning and feeling because of your words. Merry Christmas…..
Thank you so much, Tina. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
