Thanksgiving weekend always seems too early to start getting ready for Christmas, but by the next weekend I start panicking over being so far behind!. That’s where I am today, as we get together for our December Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up. Pour yourself a peppermint mocha–or a peppermint schnapps–and tell me I’m not the only one who hasn’t started making a list, let alone checking things off? I know my co-host Deborah is getting busy for Hanukkah over at Confessions Of A Mother Runner–she’s so good at entertaining!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the one holiday thing I have done is to sign up for #AdventWord emails to get daily meditations on various Advent themes. It’s always fun to see the images people share on Twitter and Instagram with the #AdventWord hashtag.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask what your favorite holiday traditions are? I am looking forward to my annual cooking baking event next weekend. Last year my friend hosted in her new kitchen, which I loved so much we used the same contractor for our new kitchen! So of course I am hosting this year.
We always have fun decorating the cut-outs.
If we were having coffee, I would congratulate Deborah on being selected as one of the race ambassadors for the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run, which will be held April 8, 2018.
I look forward to working with them on the social media team for #CUCB2018
The Cherry Blossom 10 mile run has a lottery entry system, which is open now through December 11th– find out more and sign up here!
If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you plan to participate in the holiday #RunChatHunt photo scavenger hunt organized by #RunChat and supported by Altra and other great sponsors. Check out the list of items and entry details here.

If we were having coffee, I’d probably
whine tell you about the two business trips I have this week–tomorrow I head to Boston for an internal meeting, and then from there I head to New Jersey for a client meeting. Although I always dread packing, the meetings themselves will be good, and I hope to manage a run in Boston. If I ran in New York City this time last year, Boston can’t be that much colder, right?
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my Mom’s first week out of the hospital has been a good one. (My aunt came to stay with her and I have been visiting as often as a I can.) She is getting stronger every day, and the excellent care and support she is getting is helping keep her spirits up. Her experience has reminded all of us how precious life is, how important family and friends are, and how simple acts of kindness can be so meaningful.
