I wanted to take a moment and say Merry Christmas to everyone out there in the blog-o-sphere.
This is one of my favorite times of the year. It's my favorite because I love decorating the house with evergreens and shiny things, because friends that have moved away come back home during the holidays and because eggnog is readily available in the grocery store, just to name a few reasons.
Back in the day, before cell phones, the interweb, and when my age could still be recorded as a single digit, I would wake up in the middle of the night and sneak into the living room to check out what had been left under the tree. Of course everything was wrapped securely in festive paper. After a few years, I grew adept at guessing what was inside of the box by it's weight, density and the way it sounded when I shook it. Even now I'm still very much a kit ta heart. Although I no longer wake up at 3:00 a.m. to take stock of the swag under the tree, I do still get a little buzz of anticipation on Christmas Eve.
I hope everyone has a bright and joyful holiday!
