December 1, 2013


It is so hard to believe that December is already here. 
I am embracing this season with open arms! 
Today I'm linking up with Oh Boy 4th Grade today to share this month's currently…

Listening: to She & Him Christmas pandora station.  I found this station yesterday morning while decorating our tree & I just can't turn it off.

Loving:  being surrounded by Christmas decor.  The holiday season is in full swing around our house.  My husband and I put our tree up yesterday morning & decorated for Christmas.  I'm currently sitting on my couch with the tree lit next to me & holiday tunes playing throughout the house. hello December!

Thinking: I could use just one more day of Thanksgiving break before heading back to my kiddos.  The past four days have absolutely flown by.  Each day was filled with so much family and friend goodness.  I could use another day just to catch up on the everyday before heading back to the daily.

Wanting: to enjoy every single moment of this holiday season.  The month of December always seems to pass so quickly.  With all the holiday celebrating, good eating & wonderful times with family & friends the days pass in the blink of an eye.  I hope to slow it down and take it all in this year.

Needing: to get my grad school homework done.  I have one last assignment that needs to be completed for my class this semester.  I just need to power through & get it done. (See how that "one more day" would be useful here!)

Favorite Tradition: Putting up the Christmas tree.  Every year, my husband and I pull out the tree and all the decorations together.  We turn up the Christmas music and slowly take out all the ornaments, reminiscing about each one, sharing stories from our years past.  This year was especially full of thoughts & stories as we'll have a little one crawling at our feet next Christmas!

& don't forget tomorrow kicks off the great TpT Cyber Monday & Tuesday Sale.
Everything in my shop will be on sale!
