Sometimes kids surprise me. This was too sweet. I’m about to tear into that Candy Cane right now.

Christmas time is here!

Christmas is definitely my favorite time of year. These past few post graduate years, I’ve felt like a bit of a scrooge but I’m feeling in the Christmas spirit this time around. I realized that I love to give presents & that I love thoughtful gifts much more than electronics or clothes. Don’t get me wrong, the electronics are good too, but I could buy them myself. Give me homemade sweets, A movie or a scrapbook and I’m good to go.

But this year, I had a lot of fun putting together the gifts for my family and friends. I’m greatly anticipating their reactions and hoping they’re as excited to receive them as I am to give them. Presents are wrapped and under the tree and the Christmas countdown has officially begun. 

I think this season isn’t even about the presents, it’s about the memories with loved ones, the thankfulness for health and life & and joy you can bring to the people you love and those who need it during a time when everyone could use a little bit of hope and a warm smile.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy the time with the people you love.

“Whenever I get gloomy about the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion is starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there- fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the twin towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge. They were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling that you’ll find that love actually is all around
