december, make my wishes come true.

This? This is my favourite time of year. It is officially December - and that means Christmas is on the way. I have been doing my best to make the most of every single moment. In between work and other responsibilities, my life has been Christmas, Christmas, and more Christmas. That means holiday movies and music, decorating, making plans, and spending time with family. There is nothing quite like it. The warm fuzzy feeling in your stomach when you forget about everything and just embrace the spirit of the season....what could be better?

It's only the beginning of December- but already there have been plenty of exciting holiday moments. Like the first snowfall, white hot chocolates, watching the Santa Claus parade on TV, making gingerbread cookies with my fiance, doing a little gift shopping, and setting up the mini Christmas tree in my room. All of these things make me excited. See, I love everything about the holiday season. I might be a bit of a Christmas fanatic - but that's okay. It's called the greatest time of year for a reason!

The great thing about December? There are plenty of things to look forward to. Some of the things I am counting down to this month? Other than Christmas, of course! Going to a few concerts (O-Town, Barenaked Ladies, and Donny & Marie), seeing my friends (dinners and nights out galore), putting up the Christmas trees (we have a grand total of three in my house) and watching Christmas With the Kranks With my mom (it is our all-time favourite holiday movie). These are just a few of the things that make the holiday season so wonderful.

Since my mind is all holiday all the time, I thought that I would share a few of my favourite Christmas photos. I've been saving them on my computer here and there for the last month or so. They inspire me and fill my heart with joy.

If you couldn't tell, I am very happily that the holiday season is here. I love absolutely everything about it. The time spent with loved ones, the smells, the tastes, and everything in between. I almost wish I could slow down time and enjoy every single moment of it....because I know that it will all end too soon.

Are you getting excited for Christmas? What are your favourite holiday traditions?
