Only one day till Christmas!

What have you been up to? Packed all the gifts? And everything's ready? Have to go to work for the last day? Or tomorrow as well?

Or is it your holiday and you are out skying and enjoying snow. Or warm and great weather. Or rain as I do here in middle of Europe?

It does not really matter where you are and what you do today, because tomorrow is Christmas no matter what you do! I have to do some stuff to work today, but it's cool because I love my job and what I do. I will be baking tomorrow and made a raspberry jam today. It's all just exciting.

In order to stay in holiday spirit smile today a little more. Just for yourself, even if you don't feel too happy in this moment. Just try it and smile. And if you're smiling for someone, make sure s/he sees it so that you make him/her happy as well. That's it, because Christmas is going to come and the best thing to do today, after all the baths and jams and baking that I provided you recipes, you should be fully relaxed and happy.

I have few more recipes for you, some of them are easier, some are a bit tricky but I've done all of them and they taste amazing. Just as a last little pre Christmas gift, because I think we are all ready for Christmas by now.

And I can't stop talking to you about how happy I feel in this exact moment, about being home with my family, and tomorrow riding home to my parents and getting together with everyone I love and enjoy being with. And I realize I should just shut up, but in case you are reading this, I hope I made you smile. Just for a while in a day, I hope I made you excited. Because no matter how or if you celebrate Christmas, you deserve smile and joy and also a bit of relax and luxury. That's it, I should stop speaking now.
