Hello, and Happy December!
After meaning to write more often all last month, and yet, only posting one lonely entry – I’ve decided to jump right into twenty-five days of posts. Twenty-five days of Blogmas! I got the idea after getting excited about some of my favorite YouTubers gearing up for Vlogmas. I’ve always wanted to take part, but have never really mustered up the courage to do so. This year however, I wanted to do something. Sadly, my current phone’s camera is a bit lacking in the sound quality department, so I had to think of a way to document this month without it sounding like a garbled mess on film… Enter, Blogmas 🙂
I’ve been looking forward to this month basically all year, but I have been especially excited for Christmas time since moving to Seattle. What says Christmas more than surprise snow, chilly days, and shopping streets filled with lights? Okay, maaaaaybe getting to sing “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and knowing that I’ll actually be going back to Texas is more exciting than all that 🙂 I can’t wait to celebrate the holiday at home with my parents, my pups, friends, and family in a few short weeks. Until then, I need to get ready and get festive.
I love that the holidays can turn an otherwise stressful time – end of the year at work, am I right? – into a few weeks of magic and fun. It is a time to indulge in both the little things and the most important things; from the most spectacularly tacky sweater for a party, to spending time with loved ones and taking stock of all the things to be grateful for this year. It is also a time when drinking champagne is kind of a given, so I’m obviously a fan of that, too.
I’m planning on posts surrounding holiday entertaining, gift ideas, playlists, and stories of Christmases past. Cheers to the most wonderful time of the year!
