Yeah... I've been missing in action since the holidays started. At first I was excited, because what better time of the year to update my blog and give great holiday meal suggestions, but then life took over... and that is okay. My life is full of blessings and love, so I set my blog aside and just enjoyed this time of the year.
I love the holidays. From Thanksgiving to Christmas, I am in a state of happiness. I get to re-live and remember traditions and memories and spend time with those I love most. I get to put a Grand Fir Christmas tree in my house and breath in its pine and citrus scent, which is one of my favorite smells in the whole world.
I got to bake pumpkin pies, make fudge and eat a lot of Chex party mix. I drank my fair share of hot chocolate made from almond milk and watched a dozen Christmas movies. I decorated, I played festive tunes (Fav: Oak Ridge Boys circa 1986!), lit our advent wreath, visited family and just soaked it all in. And now it begins to fade away until next year when my heart finds it's happy home in Christmas once again.
But hello blog, I return.
