I just laid my daughter down for her afternoon nap/quiet time/play in a dark room in your bed and make tons of noise for an hour and a half...it's different every day! And I poured myself a cup of tea (cause I'm still Canadian at heart and tea warms my soul.)It's a Tim Horton's mug and anyone who's been to Canada knows Tim Horton's is the best coffee/tea place around AND it's on every corner, sometimes twice on the same corner :) Hmmm...thinking about Christmas...it's the little things I do in this season: listening to Christmas music, looking through my photo albums, walking through snow, seeing my breath in the air, looking at stockings hung, being quiet and watching the lights blink back at me from our tree, smelling pumpkin candle burning, reading cards, opening packages and putting gifts under the tree...everything leads up to a very special day and reminds me of family and home. I guess it's the feeling of being loved.
I've tried to combine Matt's traditions, my traditions and new family traditions we like to make Christmas ours. You know? I'm growing into an adult but, still wanting to be taken care of like when I was a kid. Christmas lets me do that. Am I weird? probably.
I guess I'm feeling reflective today. Must be all those Christmas/winter pictures you sent. They got me thinking! Thanks. Remember the voting ends tonight!
