As we enter the big holiday season that takes place every end of the year like clockwork (and yet still manages to surprise us when it arrives again!) our already busy lives move into chaos zones as we try to cram shopping, cleaning, and celebrating into our busy days! We spend weeks cleaning and organizing our homes, we spend big bucks shopping for gifts, food, and other holiday necessities, and we spend days garnering blisters and backaches as we stand over hot stoves, decorate homes, and wrap presents.
Don’t get us wrong, we at Voyago Vacation Rentals love the holidays, especially in our Estes Park hometown where snow and cold weather adds an extra charm, but we also find ourselves scheduling in spa days before the season officially begins, understanding that our physical and mental wellbeing must be paid attention to if we want to complete all that needs to be done in the waning months of the year!
