In a feat never before seen in my life, a three foot by two foot section of my Christmas tree turned pink this year.
It was my own fault really, on the day I was married I was given a Christmas ornament by my neighbors declaring 2001 to be our first Christmas together. A new tradition started when I opened that little crystal charm on a red satin ribbon, we were going to be Christmas ornament collectors.

I’ll admit it. I struggle with this time of year. Striking a balance has never been easy for me. My list of things that I tell myself I “have” to do contains more things than can possibly be accomplished in 25 days, even if I gave up the rest of my life. Yet I feel enormously guilty for all of the things that get left by the wayside.
