It's December 1st which means only 24 more days until one of my favorite days of the year! Ever since I can remember I have LOVED Christmas time. I think it all stems back from my childhood, because I can always remember it seeming like such a magical time. From photos under the tree to decorating it and sing Christmas songs all together, my parents always went out of their way to make Christmas such an amazing time of year! I'm also a firm believer in the idea that people who's birthdays are close to Christmas love the holidays even more. (My birthday is December 19th, only 18 shopping days left!)
But last years holidays were far less than magical. After spending Christmas night in the hospital sitting outside the ICU and loosing Dans dad on the day after, the entire holiday season sort of seemed like they never happened. So this year, I am determined to make them that much better and more memorable! In an effort to make sure I get to experience and see as much as possible, I made a list of all the
Fun things I hope to do this holiday season!
