I’m about to bah humbug you big time over here. Christmas is annoying me extra this year. Everyone around me keeps asking what to get Jolie and me and the answer is nothing. We are so so so so so so fortunate. WE NEED NOTHING. Seriously, there’s not a single thing we need. In fact we’re drowning in a bunch of things we don’t need! I cleaned out my basement last weekend and THREW AWAY an embarrassing amount of things that I hadn’t touched in years. It was all just collecting dust in some dirty corner of my basement. Embarrassing maybe isn’t a strong enough word. I was disappointed in myself. Why do I have so much stuff?!?! I CANNOT WAIT to get the Christmas tree out of the house and with is going a bunch of stuff that is nothing more than that…STUFF. I’m longing for some empty corners and breathing room. I like to call myself a really bad minimalist. I always feel so inspired by minimalism, but I’m pretty terrible at it. Just maybe if I flood myself with enough beautiful minimalism it will rub off on me.
Can we all just boycott Christmas consumerism and refine what we own? (Probably not the right stance for a store owner to take….opps…oh…well.)
If those pics don’t make you want to clean out more than just your basement…I don’t know what will. I’m going to be doing some major cleaning out after the holidays!
