Things I love right now

I love Christmas! Not the commercialism and extravagant gifts, but the true meaning of Christmas and charity. Giving truly is better than receiving! And spreading peace, joy and love to all those around you.

Here's a few other things I'm loving right now!

  • The twins donated 66 new books to their school book drive for needy children! We've been buying books all year- and they were so excited to take them in this week. I'm so proud of them!
  • this 'Home for Holidays' candle I have! YUM!
  • Finding the perfect gift for your loved one
  • and all the built up anticipation as you wait for them to open it!
  • Watching a child's eyes light up when they talk about Santa
  • Knowing all the chaos leading up to Christmas is totally worth it!

And to top it off my mom will be home for Christmas! Its been a long tough year with a third of it spent in the hospital.

I have a feeling its going to be a truly wonderful Christmas and an even better NEW YEAR!
