Holiday 2022 Bucket List

The holiday season has finally arrived and I am 100% here for it!  This year has flown by, but I'm ready to take some time to soak in the holiday magic before we close out 2022 and move forward into another chapter and welcome 2023.

This time of year is usually a flurry of crazy at our house due to all of the orders Eliot and I need to finish for our businesses.  But I always try to take a step back and take a breath.  Creating these bucket lists has helped me try to enjoy what I can out of each season... and if I'm not able to get to everything, that's ok too.  At least we're taking more time for ourselves (without feeling guilty!) and that's a huge improvement!

This year, I made a massive holiday bucket list.  I've continued to separate my goals into categories because it's much easier to find them that way.  And I've probably bitten off much more than I can chew... but I'm going with it anyways.  So let's check out what ambitious Melissa wrote down for holiday goals this year!!!
