The key to truly enjoying this holiday season is not to have every moment, every bottle, every meal, and all of your plans scheduled down to every second.
If you look back at your great moments of 2010, I am guessing most will be those that were impromptu. They were those last minute plans when you agreed to meet a friend for a glass of wine or invited your neighbors in for a drink when they were dropping off holiday cookies. The holidays should not be about getting all of your packages perfectly wrapped, but it should be about those moments that you will never get back and taking the time to enjoy them...even if it means messing up your schedule.
Impromptu is not a bad thing, it can be the root of many holiday traditions to come.
