I'd like to take a break from my panicked dry-heaving about all the stuff I still haven't done on my holiday to do list —including the eight loaves of my famous cranberry, orange, walnut bread that aren't going to bake and send themselves— to share something.
How is it the end of the year already?How did this happen?
I'm going to save all of my usual annual reflections for the upcoming New Year's issue, but for now I'll just say that I'm floored. The year the world stood still is finally coming to a close.

But, until December 32nd, here's what I'm going to do:
Focus like a laser on only the tasks and projects that will really make a difference going into these last couple of weeks.

PreparePumpkinfor the arrival of her old snuggle pal, Nugget — mylittle weirdo puppywho will be joining the Moorehead household in January.

It's all too easy to get consumed by the annual end-of-year stress rollercoaster, where we obsess over all we haven't done instead of reflecting on how much we've been able to accomplish. Tonight, I urge you to take a moment and slow down.And breathe.

Fill it only with things thatreallycount.Cut out all of the distraction and noise. Give yourself permission to punt projects and tasks so you can stay on track with the objectives that will genuinely make the most difference in this final countdown. I guarantee everything in front of you right now in this moment does not fall into that category.
Oh, and uh, if any of you want to add "Bake bread loaves for Liz" to your list, I wouldn't complain.
