The first Friday night in December has arrived, leaving just three weeks until Christmas Day. The anticipation is real and I am ready!

In a most surprising turn of events, I have managed to finish the bulk of my holiday shopping. Making a concerted effort to patronize small shops and makers meant I could not leave any purchases to the last minute. Of course, Amazon managed to be the only place I was able to find a few of the particular items for which I was searching and while I’m loathe to inflate the pockets of Mr. Bezos anymore than they already are, I’m grateful to the platform for many reasons.

Not having to stress about scrambling for gifts to give is one of the best presents I am giving to myself this year, the gift of Christmas Presence.
