We are getting down to the wire for 2015 friends!  It’s the last month, and it will hopefully be filled with cherished memories.  I have several interesting shares for you today, many with a December-type feel.  Hopefully you will find something you like, a new writer to follow, or an idea to try.

Don’t forget…it’s not too late to join December Reflections!

Love and Family through Tough Times:  A video from Fox Football’s Thanksgiving Pregame about Philadelphia Eagles DT Bennie Logan.  I’m not an Eagles fan, but after watching this, I am a Bennie Logan fan.

Christmas in the 1970’s versus Christmas Today by Victoria Fedden…awesome and hysterical…yet true

A Town on Top of a Fish – by Marc Jordan

Countdown to Christmas Kindness Calendar

A Lighter, Simpler, More Meaningful Holiday from Becoming Minimalist

Making Christmas Magic (with Free Printable) from Vicki, the Moxie Girl

To plan for 2016, you might be looking for a “reading” or a “writing” prompt per day.  Check out Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year by Demi Lovato and Tiny Buddha’s 365 Tiny Love Challenges by Lori Deschene

Christmas Lights by Coldplay

Zoella’s Christmas Haul – I love her accent!

Peppermint Bark K Cups – so good!

“Right Here, Right Now, We are doing it!” – Elizabeth Gilbert

Some of my favorite vendors for photo books, cards, and canvas prints at this time of year are Mixbook, Shutterfly, CG Pro Prints, and Minted.

And finally, on a personal note, I am very troubled by the state of our world and our society…the arguing, the hatred, the blaming, the slanted media, the agendas…the list goes on and on.  It is hard to shut off the outside world, but I am doing just that and limiting my time spent checking news feeds and social media.  Our world is changing, and perhaps it is naive of me to just ignore it for right now, but I’d rather have my nephew’s little hand in mine, hear my niece laughing, explore a new place with a friend, or create something with my words and photos than engage in a never-ending war of comments on social media.  I am choosing to focus my energy on having a wonderful holiday season, because isn’t that what this season is all about anyway?

Peace, love, and joy people…peace, love, and joy.

Until next time,

Jill
