31 free things: Christmas

It’s crazy this time of year yeah? I’m feeling crazy?! OR rather under the weather before our trip away. With all this spending and craziness at Christmas, I find it a great time to reflect as well. Sometimes life, over the course of the year, feels like it speeds up and gets real bumpy towards the end. We’ve had a great year here at Do Re Media and are so grateful for the support. But over the next couple of weeks we are putting down the devices to reconnect with our friends and family. Here are 31 things that inspired me to do exactly that. Life is lived in moments and details, and I think that’s what I’d like to do more of in 2016. (More here by Leo Babaut.)
