Happy Sunday y’all! This week started as any other and promised to be a fun, lazy week. I binged on the Fae trilogy by C.J. Abedi. I rewatched season 1 of Fuller House. We shopped for our Angel from the Salvation Army and dropped off those presents. We attended the Nutcracker performance by the TN Youth Ballet. And I finished Christmas shopping for the immediate family, meaning my husband and son. All in all it should have been a good week and it was until Saturday morning. My mom called to let me know that one of my uncles had passed away in the night. To say I was shocked is an understatement. Yes, he’d been sick for a long time but it was not expected at least by me or my dad. There will be no funeral because my uncle didn’t want one. He didn’t want people sad so I’ve tried not to be. My sweet husband kept me busy yesterday and my son has a PJ day planned for today. And we will be looking at houses again later today. But I’m still sad. Sad that the last time I saw my uncle wasn’t a “see you later” but actually the last time. I’m sad for my cousins and their families and I’m sad for my aunt. I’m just sad.
Since Im sad, I decided to read a sweet, holiday romance instead of picking up my next review book. It isn’t really fair to an author if I read a book when I’m sad. I learned that after my grandfather passed last year. However Shanna Hatfiled’s Hardman Holidays never ceases to make me smile.

Each week a different topic centered around the holidays will be discussed. I hope you will join me this year and link up your holiday themed posts!

This Week’s Book Fix
What are you reading this week?
This is little man’s last full week of school before the holiday break. I’ll be helping some at the school with the set and costumes for the Christmas program, finishing up my shopping and wrapping presents. Next Saturday is my dad’s family Christmas party which will not be the same without my uncle there. Remember our family if you will this week. I know my aunt and dad would appreciate it.
