The holidays are a mixed bag of emotions filled with some high highs and low lows. On one hand you have time to catch up with friends who are back in town, on the other, you have your family. I like to try to focus on the positive, but during the holiday season, I have to try a little harder. Luckily, having great people and places around you helps with that. Plus, I'm getting super excited decorating my house with garland and a live tree.
