Holiday Season Bucket List

December 9, 2013

As a kid, I loved the holiday season. I would count down to it and count down to it… singing Christmas carols and wanting to decorate the house from top to bottom and of course, waiting for Santa. Then helping Santa as I got older. I still generally love the Christmas season,  it is still magical and the celebration of Christ’s birth is always in my mind. But it has definitely had its highs and lows as I’ve gotten older. There have been some years where I’ve not even wanted to put up the tree. This year though, I’m throwing myself into it. In fairness, it is a bit of a distraction to keep my mind off of my original December plans, but I’m going with it. So, here is my holiday bucket list for the craziness that is December in my life…

The tree! So much for the ease of the pre-lit tree... I had to make a Target run to buy lights to add to it this year!
