IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS! I’m so excited; I feel like a little kid. I’ve enjoyed my first 3ish weeks of work more than I thought I would, but I can’t wait to see my family and celebrate the holiday. Unfortunately, it’s snowy and icy in Wisconsin and I reallyreallyreally hope my flight(s) home tomorrow aren’t impeded by bad weather here or in Detroit, where I have a layover. Keep your fingers crossed!
Anyway, I just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful holiday, if you celebrate Christmas. If not, I hope your Chanukah or Solstice or holiday of choice was/is absolutely delightful. I also wanted to post a photo of the food I collected for Project Feed Me.
To be honest, I didn’t manage to buy food for every week and I ended a week or two early because I was in the middle of moving to Wisconsin. But I still feel good about participating, especially since I donated everything to a collection at my mom’s school (she’s a special ed teacher), and a local philanthropist will match all donations collected there. Oh, and I also ended up switching up some of the recommended food items because they weren’t veg*n, but I hope that my meager offerings help people in need this season. It’s so easy to forget how lucky and blessed I am sometimes, so I think I’m going to make an effort to donate more food, money, and time to those less fortunate than me in the year to come. After all, I’m a working girl now, so there’s no excuse!
Well, I’m going to go scrounge around in the kitchen for a snack, hehe. Merry Christmas, friends! I hope the next few days are filled with lots o’ love&joy. Cheers!
