It’s Sunday! And I’m being thoroughly distracted by Netflix and new episodes of Parks and Rec, and even more distracted by the idea of the upcoming holiday season. After a celebratory dinner last Thursday for Joe’s last home soccer game (and a win!), we wandered through Crate & Barrel, which is decked out in full gear for the Christmas season. It felt a little sinful, to be looking at all of the reds and greens and golds when Halloween isn’t even here yet. But I can’t unsee it all, and now I’m mentally ready for Christmas. Which always makes me long for the streets of Copenhagen, because nobody over-celebrates the season quite like Danes. The street decorations, the food, the parties, and the markets. So this year, no shame in over-celebrating. I’m giving myself, and everyone else, permission to start getting excited. The best season – one of celebration and togetherness and cookies, is near. And if you’re low on holiday inspiration, stop by your local Crate & Barrel. You won’t be sorry ((but your wallet might)).
