As I write this post I am officially sinking into “Holiday Mode”, listening to Josh Groban’s “Noel” album, and of course gazing out my window onto St. George Boulevard and the fall colors.


Getting into “Holiday mode” is not so much an “event” for me, but rather a “process.” It begins right after Halloween when the sadistic retailers start cramming Christmas down our throats. We all saw we hate it, but secretly I love to see the Christmas stuff go up!



In late November I start to run into Christmas music on various radio stations and the day before Thanksgiving (today), I always “let go” and play my own stuff at the office. Thanksgiving festivities, Black Friday sales and the St. George temperatures, colors and blue skies carry us into December and then Holiday mode is undeniable.


But I digress…


My family eats, I pay my bills, drive a vehicle, enjoy my bicyle and even occasionally vacation – all because of our amazing St. George Real Estate clients who allow us to help them buy, sell, invest in, or simply discuss all things real estate.


In this industry I am BOMBARDED daily with bad news, talk of foreclosures, pre-foreclosures, bankruptcies, and more. I am just grateful for our loyal clients and the business we enjoy because of them. I know that the Holidays don’t put an end to any of our misery, sufferings or trials, but they bring with them an unmistakable spirit of good will and love.


All my best to you and yours this season and into 2010.
