My true love gave to me...
An early-morning trip to the gym while our baby slept
A clean sink
The completion of our second-to-last grad school application.
My other true love gave to me...
The consumption of a big breakfast
A fuss-free morning nap
A big kiss when she woke up
I can't believe it's December!
The sky is that lovely shade of gray that brings the promise more snow.
In fact, as I look out my window now, snowflakes have started to fall.
I can't help but be excited about it.
Though October and November tie for a close second, I think December is my favorite month of the year.
Festival of Trees.
Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider.
Lights at Temple Square.
A Christmas Story.
Peppermint Stick ice cream.
Crazy mall Santa.
Visits with old friends.
An entire week with family.
Doesn't get much better than that.
On my Christmas to-do list today:
Finally buying lights to adorn our naked tree
Baking a test batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for Santa
Dunking above-mentioned cookies in milk
Starting on Christmas cards
Finding Reece the perfect gift, which is nearly impossible, for the record
Hope your first day of Christmas is a lovely one!
