I was so happy when Ashley asked me to guest post! Honored actually. Her space is a favorite of mine in blog land. Her positive outlook on life, the way she captures and shares sweet daily life along with the big adventures with her beautiful family, is all so inspiring!
I'd like to share with you guys a few of my favorite things that come along with the Christmas season...with a few photos from our little family's Christmas time last year.
LIGHTS:Whether it's the warm glow from our fireplace, the light from our Christmas tree that soaks our front room, driving by a home covered in twinkling lights, or the light and scent from a Christmas candle on a beautifully set table...Christmas lights add such a cozy, warm touch to an otherwise cold, and dark winter.
CONTAGIOUS CHRISTMAS CHEER:You know what I'm talking about right? The contagious Christmas cheer that makes us smile so big our cheeks hurt, and the Christmas cheer that's been known to make hearts grow 3 times their size in just one day ;) I love how the Christmas season brings smiles that come from listening to Christmas music, wrapping presents for our sweetheart, going to the mailbox and finding Christmas cards, the warm feeling that fills your chest after drinking hot chocolate, when you share hearty laughs with family, or the smile that comes after a kind stranger lets you go in front of them in the grocery store checkout line because they can tell that your young son was ready to be done and be home. People have a stronger disposition to do good to those around them...and I love it.
Here's wishing everyone a lovely Christmas and holiday season!!
I'm going to get me a glass of eggnog :)
