And Just Like That…It’s October 1st!!!

Yes, Fall is here and the temperature in Big D reflects the change in season. Fall is a season we don’t always get in the Lone Star State. Usually, we slide from a long Summer right into chilly Winter—-slipping from Labor Day into Christmas without a hint of Fall in between. Thankfully, there’s Halloween and Thanksgiving serving as holiday speed bumps to slow us down a smidgen as we turn the curve on the final lap of the year and gear up for the holi-daze.

(Yes. I said the “C” word)

With the turning of the calendar, we see that the holiday season is soon going to be upon us. Yes, Virginia. Christmas is coming.

Friday evening, I was tootling around my blog, looking at older posts. And when I say older, I mean we’re blogging like it was 2013 or 2014.

I enjoyed reminiscing and looking over older posts from “way back when.” I also discovered that I need to go back and fix some content issues—-broken links, videos that are no longer available, add some photos, and such. You get the idea, right?

Managing a blog requires more than just creating content. It means going back, sweeping up broken links, catching missed typos, updating formats (when possible) and taking out the trash (let’s face it, all posts are not created equal). Let’s face it—your blog probably doesn’t look the same as when you started.

In the process of redoing down memory lane, I stumbled across some old holiday posts—-you guessed it—about Christmas. So, I thought I’d re-share them with y’all in this post commemorating yet another turn of the old calendar. Here are 9 of my past Christmas posts.

Are we really talking about Christmas? Yeah. But only for a brief moment. It’s not that time yet. But, thinking of Christmas makes me hopeful and joyful with anticipation. It’s the kind of thing I need after a tough week.

  1. I fully understand the skipping of fall feeling. We’re just a few hours north and the leaves turn brown one day and blow off the next.
