Christmastime is Here

12.23.2011

Seeing as how I had this entire week off, I was so sure that I would get many a blog post written.

Clearly and sadly, that didn't happen. A lot of other things got accomplished though...

...presents are wrapped


...stockings are stuffed


...cookies are baked

...and Christmas has fully resided itself in our humble household

Tomorrow is Christmas eve and we will be spending it with our families. I am so thankful that both of our families for the most part live in North Carolina. It makes holidays a little easier to manage. Our first stop will be lunch in Mount Airy with my parents, brother/sister-in-law and my great grandpa before heading back to Charlotte to spend the evening with the Janke side of the family.

I am actively trying to savor holidays more with my family because time on this earth is fleeting. Christmas is magical not because of presents or cookies, but because of the people it's spent with and because of the gift we freely received so many, many years ago. A gift that we could never deserve or earn...a gift of ultimate, true love...

And with that said, I wish all of you a very merry Christmas eve eve!

I love love love Mt. Airy! My best friend actually moved from Indiana to Elkin and I visited her. :) I always tell my husband I think I'm meant to live in North Carolina. I always feel so at home though. I left my heart in Wilmington this past May..but don't worry, I go back at least a few times a year to get it back! ;)

Merry Christmas!!
