It’s the most wonderful time of the year

I love this time of year. I love getting the Christmas stuff out of the attic and poking through the boxes with a smile and a giggle. How many years will the glue on a kindergarten popsicle stick ornament last? I hope forever.

I love browsing the aisles at Garden Ridge, scouring their selection for a fantastically funky ornament to add to my collection.

I love sniffing candles at my favorite little shop until I find that perfect Christmas tree fragrance that will fill my home and warm my soul.

I love watching my husband watch me decorate the tree.

I love a simmering pot of spicy apple cider.

I love spiking the egg nog.

I love the Holidays.
