Christmas Time!

I cannot believe how quickly this month has passed! Christmas is only a few weeks away but I'm doing my best not to feel frazzled. I've always felt that the best way to not only survive the holidays but to enjoy them as well is to take things slow and simple. If attending numerous events, hosting huge parties, and buying tons of gifts stresses you out, DON'T DO IT! Celebrate how you see fit and you'll have a wonderful time.

Today I did some Christmas shopping with my good friend Michelle. We also took some time to get yummy coffee as well and it was a great time. It reminded me that Christmas is about sharing Christ's love with others, that presents are a token of love, not love itself. If you stress yourself out over giving gifts, can you really say the gifts were given out of love?

Decking the halls



Things are looking quite Christmasy at my house! I even decorated my own room with some Ren Faire and NYC themed items!  I spent the day getting the tree from a local tree farm, wrapping gifts, and reading Agatha Christie. It's been a lovely, restful day.

Christmas Time

No matter how far the world gets from the truth of Christmas that truth will live on as long as there are a few who believe.
