A little Christmas Home Tour

December 15, 2015

I didn’t really deck the halls all at once this year. Each day we have added a little more here and there which has been a great way to anticipate Christmas…

 Stringing up lights and adding the smell of pine just sets the tone for the feeling that something great is coming. My little Veronica has been dutifully attending her advent chain, and all of them anxiously counting down the days till we are reunited with my big family. It’s a magical time of year when you have children who bubble over with excitement over every mention of anything Christmas.

Gabe and I have never been so excited for the 25th. (We say this every year.) And considering we were all knocked down with the flu last week, I am crossing my fingers for good health. To be honest, it has been some of the most challenging weeks of the year, but I have noticed that in order to appreciate what you have, sometimes you have to be forced to be still. I had to cancel plans, let go of my ideas of how Christmas should be, and simply accept. All I really need to focus on is bringing my family close together, celebrate the gift of each other, and the faith that brings us together each Christmas.

As another year approaches I always start to think through the direction of all areas of my life and where it is headed. We will see what January spits out;) Thanks to each of you who visit here each day. I appreciate you so much.

P.S. A little more of our home for Christmas here.
