i will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.


Christmas has always been the greatest time of year for me. When my mom was growing up, they didn't celebrate any holidays. As a result, she always made sure that every holiday was memorable for my siblings and I.

Whenever I think about Christmas, I get that fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach. I love the build up - finding the perfect gifts for the people you love, Christmas music on the radio, watching Christmas movies with my family as the snow falls outside, red and green everywhere, bits of tinsel on the carpet, and the unforgettable glow of the Christmas tree.

I know that it is still November, but I simply couldn't wait any longer to post about Christmas! Here are some pictures and quotes to get you in the holiday spirit.



"Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions 
of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures 
of his youth, and transport the traveler back to 
his own fireside and quiet home!
- Charles Dickens


"Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn't come from a store."
- Dr. Seuss




"At Christmas, play and make good cheer, for Christmas comes but once a year."
- Thomas Tusser 



Are you excited for Christmas yet?
