Christmas is less than one week away. It’s THIS weekend. No matter how many times I listen to Elvis’ Christmas album on the iPod or look at the cards and packages I’ve received in the last few days, it just doesn’t feel like the holidays.
— American for “holiday”: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Valentine’s Day, 4th of July, etc.
— American for “the holidays”: Christmas and New Years (and even the period from Thanksgiving through New Years)
— Much of the rest of the world and “holiday”: vacation
With “the holidays” approaching, I have decided to take a “holiday” from blogging, and perhaps Twitter, to focus on friends, family, and festivities.
Sad that you’ll miss a Christmas post from me?! Never fear! My new friend Chris from Aussieontheroad.com invited me to share a guest post on his site about my first Christmas away from home. Check it out — Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
Haven’t seen my updated bucket list? What are you waiting for?!
To my family and friends at home — I love and miss you! ♥
To my amazing group of friends in London — you’re always in my thoughts, especially on NYE after spending two of them with you! Can’t wait to see you again.
To my fellow travelers — enjoy the holidays wherever in the world you may be and I hope to catch up on your blogs & adventures soon!
And to my new friends in Oz — thank you for being part of this beautiful adventure.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year (and other holidays you may be celebrating!), and I’ll see you in 2011!

Still not sure how you’ll cope without me over the next few weeks? Bless. Why not catch up on some guest post reading?
