I can't believe that it is already December 8th. This year has really just flown by. I remember being a kid and the month of December would just drag by. Every day I would open the date on my Advent Calendar and take out a chocolate, I'd cut one of my paper rings off the chain, I'd cross one more day off the calendar....and it seemed like forever! Now it seems like Christmas will be here before I know it and I'm not even close to ready! We haven't gotten our tree, we haven't put out Christmas decorations, I haven't done ANY shopping, watched any Christmas movies...I'm so busy that I haven't had any time to enjoy the season. Until tonight.
Tonight, Brett & I went and saw "A Christmas Carol" at the Hale Center Theater. It was wonderful. I've always enjoyed the story, but there was something about slowing down our lives for a second to take the time to go see it tonight that I really understood the message and meaning behind it. I need to slow down and enjoy every moment before all I have are past regrets that I never took the time to enjoy the season while I still can. Merry Christmas!
By the way, I still think "Mickey's Christmas Carol" is my favorite version of this classic story!
Brett and I met on a study abroad in Germany. On August 10, 2007, exactly one year from our first date, we got married! We both graduated in May 2008. We love to travel and take every opportunity we can to get away!
In October 2011 we had our baby girl, Adelyn. We are riding the parental learning curve now!
