It’s no surprise how much I love December. I wake up to such a nice, warm living room, beautiful flickering lights… There’s something very special about how festive all December days are.
Also, somehow all of our weekends are always tied up to something Christmas related – so you won’t hear a single complaint from this girl.
This past weekend was spent at my in-laws. Saturday was the day of getting some last minute shopping done for the tree (thanks Pier 1 for some cute, unique & discounted ornaments!) and go to my in-laws to help pick out a tree and set it up.
Sunday morning saw us being formally accepted as new members to our Church. I absolutely love our community, and I love how families have been going there for over 20+ years. It’s their second home and I just hope we will soon be one of those families.
Right afterwards we went back to my in-laws to help with tree decorations. She is hosting a party on Saturday and the tree has to be done done.
It was an amazing time to be surrounded by family and decorating a 12ft tree! Ours is barely a 6-7 foot one, so it makes my day to decorate such a large one.
This weekend left me feeling all kinds of warm and fuzzy from family time, and from finding our place in our church. I can only hope I can do as much for them as they have already done for us. Time to put my time to good use for our community!
