You guys, I could not wait any longer to get my Christmas Tree up. I have been begging my husband for weeks to put the tree up and he always puts me off for as long as possible. I am a nut about the holidays and the sooner I get that bad boy up, the happier I am. This time, I used my niece as bribery to get the tree up over the weekend. How can you say no to your sweet, 12 year old niece right? It worked like magic and all of my Christmas decorations are now adoring my house.
Now every chance I get, I want to turn the tree on. I have the tree on when I am getting ready for work in the mornings, even if its only for a few minutes, I have it on the minute I get home until I leave for the gym and until I go to the bed. I love, love, love my tree.
The big part of the holidays for me is not the gifts or the money, it is the decorations, the feel of everything and spending time with family. I love the lights, the spirit and just the environment. I could sit in my living room watching sappy Hallmark Christmas movies with the tree on every evening and be completely content. These are things that make my heart fill with joy!
I hope everyone else is starting to enjoy the Holiday season as much as I am!
