Festive Wisdom from Jen

One of our favourite bloggers is Jen of Perfect In Our Imperfections. Today she posted some cracking holiday advice. She would have been perfect for our Help For The Holidays episode!

And if you're doing too much: STOP. Maybe you don't need to send a holiday card to anyone who ever said hello to us and bake 4,000 cookies of 5 different kinds to give to everyone (who probably is on a diet too and really doesn't want the extra temptation). No one will hate you if, instead of poring through dozens of stores and catalogs and websites to get the exact perfect gifts, you get everyone gift certificates for iTunes or Starbucks or spa treatments or Amazon.com. Here's a big anti-stress secret: People who love you do not want you to put yourself through the wringer or into excessive debt to please them.
