This will be a short blog post, as after this, I will be offline until after I return home on Wednesday 🙂 This is my favorite time of year, and I just wanted to share why. It’s not about the presents. It never has been. I could quite literally be happy with a ball of string! I adore the atmosphere of this time of year. People are more friendly and kind (which is a little sad, because that is how it should be all the time), the Christmas music is lovely, and I get to see all kinds of friends and family at various gatherings and eat amazing food. The only thing that could possibly make it better this year is having large amounts of beautiful white snow on the ground 🙂 I am so excited to see my families tomorrow and spend more time with them, as it is hard to come by since we live 2-3 hours away from them. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, regardless of what you celebrate, and treasure the time you have with your loved ones!
