Let’s Get Real

  Christmas has overtaken my world with a rush of activity, smells and sights that I love and loathe alike. Candies, songs, memories and expectations all smash together into a big ball of joy and stress careening down the snowy hill of December and poised to crash awkwardly into the New Year.
