Today I was completely baffled by how quickly time is passing. I can hardly believe this year is almost over. So much has happened for me and looking back it seems like an eternity of experiences, but time proves otherwise. I really did plan a wedding, get married, visit over 26 states and move from California to London all in a matter of months. Whew.
In the wake of it all, it feels good to be finding a rhythm here. It also feels good to be getting in the Christmas mood a bit pre-maturely. I'll admit, I even listened to a few Christmas songs before Halloween. I blame it on the cold weather and my Florida body/mentality totally wanting to live it up. It could also be that I'm really excited for Kurt and my first Christmas together as a family (I like saying that). I know we'll miss everyone back home, but I think it'll be a sweet way to experience it.
Kurt is huge on Christmas, which is great, because my family wasn't and I want to make up for lost fun. I know I will with him. We hope to begin some really cool traditions in our family and it's fun to know that we can start from scratch and do whatever we want. What are some of your favorite things about Christmas and does your family have any unique traditions?
On a completely different subject, I spent time on Pinterest today and was inspired by all the garlands I came across (I even made a new board: Party Time). I want to share a few of my favorites.
