As a child I loved Christmas- it was my favorite time of year filled with love, family, friends, and giving. On Christmas morning I found presents left around our tree, footprints of soot left on the fireplace from Santa, and pine needles strewn in the backyard.

Over the years Christmas started to loose the special meaning behind it due to family ties being lost and other factors. My mentality of Christmas this year is not to actually label it as “Christmas” but approach it as a day to spend time with those that I care about, and giving.


I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, whether you are celebrating it or not! =]
