It's almost Christmas. For me, Christmas was celebrated early due to the fact that I just moved to New York a week and a half before the actual holiday. I've been in Christmas mode since early November. As you all know, Christmas is my favorite holiday. I think that's why I chose to move before Saint Nick's birthday. I wanted to have half of my holiday season spent with my loved ones, and the other half doing something completely new. Before I moved, I wanted to make sure I decorated my parent's house for Christmas. A tradition we do every year, and just because I was moving didn’t mean it couldn’t be as festive as it usually is. Every year we go all out, and that's one of the things I will miss the most when I'm on my own this year. My mom always turns on all her Christmas albums, and we have so much fun putting out all the decorations and singing along to every song. One of the greatest blessings for me has been growing up in a musical household. The music is always on blast and always being sung aloud. Now that I’m in New York, I can now jam out to holiday playlists like Spotify's Christmas Classics Playlist that is sponsored by SIMPLE Mobile. This will bring me back to the days when I was helping my mom in California. I've been so busy that I just haven't had time to sit down and make the best Christmas playlist. Luckily, Spotify took care of that for me this year so now I have spare time to do last minute shopping and organize my new place. My parents live outside of SF, so I made my way out of the city to help get their Christmas tree before I left. It was bittersweet getting my last Christmas tree as a citizen of California, but that just made this time even more special. After helping them with their tree and getting all the decorations up, it was time for me to find the right gifts for everyone. Because of my move, I wanted to find something for my loved ones to keep us connected when I'm away for the last half of the holiday season, and beyond. SIMPLE Mobile’s Truly Unlimited plan is the perfect option for that. It comes with unlimited talk, text and truly unlimited high-speed data* (video streams at up to 480p). You get all that for only $50 a month, along with no contracts and no mystery fees or overage charges, and we can still be connected when I'm across the country in New York. It's a win-win for me and everyone that I love. I'm going to miss my family this Christmas, but the fact that I'll still feel close to them via our phones and video chats, means everything to me. I'm so grateful that I got the chance to at least kick off their holiday season and leave my mark on California before Santa comes to town.
