"Blast this Christmas music. It's joyful and triumphant." ~ The Grinch

wearing thrifted dress, vintage clutch & Ebay rings

There is nothing more annoying during Christmas than missing your family and then having people trying to shove "being merry" down your throat. And why do people have to be so aggressive with their ways of spreading joy.. I wasn't aware of my apparent obligation to put on a fake smile and join in on the carolling.

I will spare you the details, but I assure you I will survive the misery with my trusted companions, Xanax and Chocolate. Aside from that, I have a pretty amazing non-hectic island family, who are perfectly satisfied with a beer and a good conversation. Mellow, mellow.

As for the giveaway, I tossed up the names and via random number generator -

Awww don't worry, I too feel like the christmas cheer can be a bit TOO overpowering at times. Anyway, there's always new years celebrations to look forward to, right? Was looking at your kiteboarding pictures and it looks AMAZING... hope you've recovered from your bumps and bruises! xoxo

PS. Could you do a quick explanation of how to side french plait your hair like that??? I have never found the right technique!
