Seasonal Celebration Wednesday

Welcome to Seasonal Celebration- now on a Wednesday!

"seasonal celebration"

 Dear Friends,

I know that December is a busy month for most people. The preparation leading up to the holiday season is jam-packed for us all. With our little business in France needing so much of my attention at this time of year, I’m having to be very strict with myself indeed, so that everybody who needs my full attention, gets it!

Since the summer, my overall strategy has been to strictly separate computer time from family time. It’s easier for me throughout the year to keep the two completely separate and focus on either one or the other at a time. That way, my family or my business gets my full attention rather than divided attention. However hosting Seasonal Celebration every Sunday, has made this increasingly difficult to maintain!

So for this reason I have decided that from now on Seasonal Celebration will start every Wednesday and that I will feature two posts instead of one!

In eager anticipation,

Rebecca x

    I completely understand your decision to move to Wednesday with the hop. It can be tough keeping business and family time separate when you work from home. Best wishes with the move!

    I recently switched from my old blog, Little Homestead on the Hill, to a self hosted site…The Self Sufficient HomeAcre. I’d love to have you visit :)
    I’m also co-hosting a blog hop called Wildcrafting Wednesday, for anyone interested in natural living, herbal remedies, and self sufficiency.

    Thanks for all you do Rebecca!

    Family time is still quality time for the entire home. It’s a good thing to know that you are one of many who are struggling and trying to separate work from family bonding,.
