The whole gift buying is so much work. So much work that I get irked when the receiver doesn't make a big fuss when they open my gift. The gift that probably took me more than one shopping trip to pick out. Anyways I am basically a scrooge.
But I don't want to be.
So this season I am trying to be festive. I am trying to find the Christmas spirit. It's our first Christmas as a married couple and this year has been about starting new traditions. This is our tree. It's small. It's mini. But it's lovely. Steve and I decorated it together, with love. Steve is a better tree decorator than me. I like to sit in the dark, drink tea, and look at the lights. Christmas is pretty. Christmas -1 Emily -0.
This past weekend my friend Caitlin and I decorated some holiday wreaths. It was so much fun. So much fun like I want to decorate wreaths every weekend. But that's just silly.
Don't they look awesome?! The wreaths not the lovely ladies.
|Don't I look like a giant next to Caitlin? And note to self - time to get those roots looked after and those bangs trimmed.|
What I am trying to say - in some ways I am Scrooge but deep down I am just like Charlie Brown.
