Yesterday in church, our pastor reminded us all that Christmas Day was one month away. That wasn’t the point of his sermon or anything, but it gave me a shock. I knew it was November 25th, and thus December 25th obviously was a month later, but still. Sometimes it just doesn’t hit me early enough, I guess, haha. At any rate, I woke up this morning determined to head into December with Advent and Christmas fully on my mind.
It’s now 11:30 am and I haven’t done anything except organize my Christmas Pinterest boards. -shrug- I suppose that’s as good a start as any, and since I’m still not feeling the greatest, it’s probably to be expected. Plus, I didn’t have to work today. Maybe I should go into work, just so I can pick up a Christmas tree. (I’m still wondering how our kittens are going to handle that…O_O Might have to forgo most of the ornaments this year.) My birthday is this coming Thursday, and that has traditionally been the day that I begin to decorate, but I want to start a little sooner this year, especially as our first wedding anniversary is next Monday, December 3rd. I can’t believe it’s almost been one year!!
I think perhaps I will attempt to post everyday in December; Christmas has always been my favorite, and so I should have plenty to post about, even if all I post is a photo and a Bible verse. Advent is, after all, a season of preparing. And on a more personal note, even though our first Christmas was technically last year, with the wedding being so soon after Thanksgiving, I had so little time to prepare for Christmas, so this year will hopefully be much better! I always have grand plans in my head…they rarely happen, but we shall see.
