Blogmas Day 5: Looking Forward

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?

Busy lawyer and parent. I enjoy blogging about this and thatโ€“generally in the wee hours of morningโ€“in order to: (A) enable insomnia, and/or (B) not dream about the legal brief Iโ€™m currently obsessing over.
