Christmas is right around the corner and I couldn't be more excited! I absolutely love all the lights everywhere, that welcoming aroma of the tree that greets you when you walk in your front door. Cookie baking and present wrapping and planning surprises for your loved ones... It just doesn't get much better than this! I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful family to celebrate the holidays with and never take a day with them for granted. I guess that's really what this whole season is about, isn't it? Slowing down a bit and really taking stock of who and what truly matters in this life!
I am really trying to fully breathe in each and every day, but I have to admit I can not wait until Christmas morning when I get to see my little kids ecstatic over some toy that Santa left them! I am definitely looking forward to one one more bleary eyed Christmas morning surrounded by mountains of shredded wrapping paper! I almost can't believe its right around the corner, but at the same time it can't come soon enough!
