The most wonderful time of year filled with sparkle, love, crisp winter nights, cozy cuddles, and the people you care about the most. It’s hard to be sad when you are surrounded by so much joy.
On Christmas Eve I spent the whole day helping my mom bake yummy treats and delicious food! We sang Christmas carols and danced around the kitchen with my two sweet new kittens. On Christmas Eve we always get to open one present and it’s always new Christmas pajamas. My brother, mom, and I drive around to look at all of the amazing Christmas lights that my neighborhood puts up every year before going to bed.
In my family we have so many traditions around the holidays and it doesn’t seem to matter how old we get they always seem exciting. It’s crazy to think how fast time goes though. Seems like just yesterday I was waking up Christmas morning to see what Santa brought me and getting so excited to see he ate the milk and cookies I had left him the night before. All of a sudden I’m 23 years old and wondering where the time went between then and now. It’s a bittersweet feeling.
This time of year will always hold a special place in my heart. It really is about giving and not about receiving. When all you care about is being surrounded by the people you love the most and you don’t even know what you could ask for aside from that; you’re doing it right.
Hope you all had an amazing holiday surrounded by friends, family, good food, and loving pets!
