Hello you dearest <3
yesterday I arrived home for the Holidays ! Finally we are all together and the holy days can begin . Unfortunatelly I have to leave 1 of January but there is one week till then and spending time with my family is all that I want .
On Sunday I bought the last presents and now there are all under the tree .

 All my suitcase was full of presents ....there was just a small piece of space for a few shirtsand one pair of jeans BUT I want to spend most days in my p.j's so what the heck . Last weekend we went with my daughter to the Athens Metro Mall and it was helllll . You could only see stressed people , crying kids , angry couples ....well you know , just the usual a few days before Christmas .

Sometimes I wish everything could be so much lighter and easier like it was some years back . This picture shows Athens in the 60's at Christmas time . Wonderful , don't you think ?

The snow is fake but it really was freezing cold :-)

Finding More Joy in Spending Less

In October 2008, Lee and I were looking forward to our first holiday season together, mostly with excitement but also with an edge of trepidation. The first major holiday season in a new relationship is often tricky to navigate, but we had an extra lump of coal in the proverbial stocking to deal with -- we had both been unemployed since March. We'd managed to stay afloat thanks to unemployment benefits, some small contract work and savings -- and our prospects of having jobs soon were really good -- but we decided we really needed to set some ground rules. Assuming that we both found jobs soon, neither of us was allowed to spend more than $100 on gifts for the other person, and we'd set strict limits on purchases for our friends and family. We would not go into to debt because of the holidays. We got jobs. We stuck to our rules, and we loved the rules so much we have continued them every year since.   Read more >
