For me, it's a little bitter sweet. Christmas was a time to reconnect with my family that now lives across the nation, including Florida, Illinois, North Carolina and Wisconsin. There is nothing quite like having my husband, two sisters, mom and brother-in-law all in one house. We resort back to our youth and play video games in our pajamas while the aromatic kitchen teases us with sweet smells of warm chocolate chip cookies and freshly baked bread.
I miss that time dearly but I accept it as a moment that will come again in some shape or form. And for now, back to "life as usual" is good and somewhat comforting and exciting in it's own right. Whatever post-holiday looks like for you, I think we can all use some comfort for the soul which can be found in an oversized sweater, a chunky infinity scarf, or frankly, just a warm pair of wool socks!
