christmas break.

today officially marks my first day of christmas break. i had my last day of second term of grad school completed (yay!) on december 7th. since then i have felt much better and less stress. i didn’t realize how much of my mental capacity was taken up by school. now that i am aware of it, i look forward to strategizing a plan to have a more free mind winter term. my last day of work was yesterday, and it was a very full and festive day at the middle school. tons of students were served hot cocoa in a brand new mug that they got to take home. it was the best. i fully enjoyed it, and probably enjoyed wearing the reindeer ears a little too much :) today i plan on being festive myself. watch a christmas movie, make sugar cookies, wrap presents, do a little shopping, and diffuse some christmas smells. i hope everyone has a very happy and blessed holiday season. i want to completely embrace all this christmas has to offer, and i plan on doing so by enjoying every moment spent with family and friends and remembering all the joys of this celebration. cheers to the most wonderful time of the year!

merry christmas, from the radfords!
