Hello. Recently, I’ve been posting a lot about stuff: favorite products, gift lists, cosmetics. . . but this blog isn’t meant to sing the praises of commercialism. So lets take a break from all that today (as the Christmas and Black Friday parcels start to arrive, I think I need one).
This month, I’m looking forward to moments, not things. Here’s what I’m hoping for this December:
1.) Reading Evie The Night Before Christmas;
2.) Taking her to visit Santa;
3.) The first snow (I know I’ll be over it by February, but snow around Christmas time is magical!);
4.) Ice skating;
5.) Drinking cocoa;
6.) Visiting friends and family;
7.) Seeing the town all decorated for Christmas;
8.) Carol singing (poorly, but it’s still fun);
9.) Wrapping gifts and placing them beneath the tree;
10.) Watching Christmas films in front of the fire;
11.) Legal writing in front of the fire (preferably with cocoa), everything is better in front of a fire in winter;
12.) Lighting cinnamon and evergreen scented candles;
13.) Watching the cats demolish the wrapping paper and ribbons;
14.) Baking cookies;
15.) Christmas jumpers (and pyjamas).
16.) Going to sleep on Christmas Eve.
What memories are you planning to make this December?
