You find yourself spending more time packing and unpacking your overnight bag than you do cleaning your house
There are events 3 out of 4 nights
Cocktails and cookies have replaced wine and ice cream as your seasonal vices.
You spend more on your weekly grocery trip than you do on your monthly utility bill.
The days fly so fast that you can’t keep up with the calendar.
A holiday song comes on a shuffled playlist.
Addressing envelopes occupies your hands, even before the folding of the laundry, during your rare moments on the couch watching an episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Baking kicks into high gear
You know Christmas is coming.
