The Spirit of the Holidays

It’s that time of year where I do all the things I love. I slow down and spend time with the people I love, sip hot cocoa, wear my favorite color (red), decorate my home with warm fall colors (crimson reds, persimmon oranges, and golden yellows), delicately wrap presents, drive around the neighborhood looking at all the beautiful lights and decorations, and open my heart to giving more to the people in need. It’s the spirit of the holidays, a time to care, share, celebrate, and be grateful.

This year may look different as each of us navigates how to celebrate the holidays in a way we feel comfortable while spending time with those we care about and enjoying this wonderful season. No matter how you celebrate, whether your home smells like crisp pine from your fresh cut Christmas tree beautifully decorated with shimmery ornaments and with presents ready for your holiday party with friends and family or your well-lit outdoor patio filled with close family, picnic-style holiday food, and lots of merriment. The spirit of the holidays is always present, reminding us what is most important in life.

As this month’s Item of Value, I hope to make your time together more memorable by offering you a chance to win one of several car passes to the Trail of Lights. That’s right, Austin’s annual holiday light show in Zilker Park is going back to their original set-up—drive-through style! The enjoyment of millions of LED lights shining cheer and spreading joy to all, all from the comfort of your heated car. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the spirit of the holidays. You and your favorite folks can wear your PJs as you take a leisurely drive through the course…oooohing and ahhhhing at each new, over-the-top vignette. Have a little hot cocoa (maybe in a sippy cup to prevent spills). Register at (or click here), and be sure to share your selfies with me via text or social media if you go.

It’s a good life!
