UNDER THE TREE

The weather may say otherwise, but Christmas is only three days away! Santa already visited once this weekend, but will return. My brother and his wife came to town this weekend for the holiday due to work schedules conflicting with Christmas. It's the first Christmas in my parents new home and it felt like we've been here for years. The celebration was a little different from our past holidays: no traditional large breakfast due to family portraits that morning, steak and deer meat (of course) for dinner, and a mid-day gift exchange. But, the early holiday and variance in tradition didn't change our Christmas spirit! Family is most important to us (behind our Savior, Jesus Christ) so our hearts were happy! And, the home looks a Christmas portrait- perfect tree and decor.

You might be wondering if Santa was good to me this year. The answer is: better than I imagined, which is typical. If you read my letter to Santa, you know I was willing to sell the contents of my home for Anthropologie. My mother, um Santa, paid attention! Then, there's the TOMS wedges I've wanted and Betsey Johnson bag, both of which also found their way under the tree. Combined with home decor and scents, my gifts were very generous.

The earband shown is not the actual one I received. Mine is quite sparkly and I love it! Unfortunately, it's sold out. These jeans are incredibly flattering and work wonders for any body type. Online images of the bag do not do it justice. In fact, my mom (I mean Santa) didn't want to buy it because she (he) didn't like it. But, after seeing it in person, my mother thinks she needs one too. So, I'm on the hunt.

There's one thing that matters more to me than any gift I could receive. I get just as much joy in seeing others enjoy their gifts as I do receiving gifts. I was all smiles! The hubby and I don't exchange gifts until Christmas Day, but I expect he will treat me well! Christmas Eve is reserved for his family and snow is in the forecast! Let it Snow!

Merry Christmas
