Merry Christmas!!

I can't believe it's Christmas Eve!

I woke up this morning just like any other day and it took me a minute to realize it was Christmas!

Well, basically...

I don't know about you but Christmas Eve is always what I look forward to during this season. Christmas Eve for my family means community, story time and of course, great food.

This Christmas my parents and my closest brother aren't here with us as they've taken a trip to Mexico to visit other family which makes things a little different around here but I'm excited to spend time with my little nieces and nephews.

Last night we went to the Festival of Lights in Portland and today we'll decorate cookies, watch Christmas movies, eat home cooked meals (can you tell I really like our food?) and all around get into the Christmas spirit.

What are you doing for the holidays?

I hope whatever it is, it is just as good, filled with everything you need and that you're able to spend it with all those who matter most to you.

Happy Thursday!

Today, I will accompany my sister to drop off my parents and brother at the airport, and then accompany my niece who has an appointment with her doctor, all in a city. After living in Seattle these past two years, I've grown real accustomed to city life, even if not in the traditional sense of hanging out downtown, etc. so I'm real excited about being in Portland.

Even though I've enjoyed my last few days of rest while home, it's nice to have something, anything, to do.

What are you doing today?

Whatever it is, I hope it's just what you need.

Happy Thursday, friends!

I'm home for the holidays and though it's not always easy to lay around and do nothing for me, it is nice to sleep in and spend time with family while it lasts. Here's to you and your holiday. I hope you're enjoying it! :)

Tonight was the kind of night that I prayed for when I decided to apply to be a RA and I am so very thankful.
