winter is putting footsteps in the meadow.
I feel like I've been waiting so long to say this, but....it's December. Finally! In my home, Christmas is a huge deal. Not just the day of Christmas itself, but all the build up. We love watching Christmas movies together, decorating the house (even though it takes ages), going Christmas shopping, baking, and enjoying all of the fun traditions that go along with the season. So, it's no wonder that I always countdown to December, rather impatiently.
Unfortunately, not everyone I know is as into Christmas as my family. In fact, most people I know gripe: "But it's not even December, yet!" when I put on Christmas music at work or say that I want to watch Miracle on 34th Street. To those people, I can now say: yes it is! There is just something about this time of year. The snow, twinkly lights, and all of that warmth? Nothing fills my heart with so much joy.
Thus far, I have begun my Christmas shopping (not quite done, but almost!) and have been listening to the best of Bing Crosby non-stop. Even though life is crazy-busy at the moment, I am doing what I can to make time for the holidays. Sometimes, it's nice to take a moment and remember what is truly important: spending time with the people you cherish most.
Now that the holiday season is officially upon us, I thought that I would post some pictures to get you in the spirit. Here are a few of my favourites:
Are you excited for the holidays? What is your favourite part?
