Fighting Seasonal Affect Disorder with One Thousand Gifts

It's Monday, it's coooolllld, it's November, I saw snowflakes last night (not good news in my book), I am feeling crampy, my kids are being challenging,... but here I am being all negative when this post is supposed to be linked to Ann Voskamp's Multitude Monday.

holy experience
