Just a thought

I was discussing Thanksgiving with my father-in-law the other day, and he was feeling a bit bummed by the post-Thanksgiving Day blues. He loved having the family home, watching movies together and enjoying everyone's company. It got me to thinking about Christmas. I always can't wait for Christmas day, but it's not really Christmas day that holds the real magic for me. It's the days leading up to Christmas.

With only 3 weekends before Christmas, I've decided that I'm going to live my holiday season deliberately. After planning a wedding for a year, and feeling like the actual wedding day went waaay to fast, I'm not going to let stress and the busyness of life take away from my enjoyment of life. No falling asleep on the couch or getting stressed out by my to do lists this year. I'm going to soak up every moment with all my loved ones. Because life isn't really made up of big moments, but the every day, little moments. So here's to December's little moments! May they all be merry and bright :)
