I Have a Confession...


I have been listening to Christmas music since mid-October, and I can't stop thinking about how excited I am for Christmastime. I love everything about this season. Everything sparkles with lights and snow, people are always out and about, songs you only get to hear this time of year are playing on the radio, and it makes me happy.

I think that this year will be special because even though it is the 7th (!) Christmas that Nick and I have spent together, it will be the first one as an engaged couple. Also, we will be going to Wilmington to spend Christmas at my Mom and Step-Dad's house (my youngest brother and sister live there, and my Dad and two other younger sisters will be flying in!). It will be the first time we have all been together since July, which is the longest that we have ever gone being apart. Now that the weather is getting cold (hellllllllo 35 degrees this morning), I think it will really kick the holiday season into gear.

The frame ornament in the upper right is one of my favorites of all time! That's me on the right!

How about you? Does anyone else get abnormally excited for Christmas?
