Merry Christmas

Christmas is by far my favorite time of the year!   Yes...even better than my Birthday Month...   The winter-like weather, the music, the lights, decorating the tree (my tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving and stays up well into January).   I once kept my Christmas tree up for a year and a half.   No - not because I'm lazy - but because one year I realized I was an adult and I could do whatever I wanted to do...

The holiday spirit, people seem nicer, a time of giving.   And although I tend not to get wrapped up in the commercialism that can at times overshadow the holidays - I can appreciate the spirit of it all - just the same.

For me, this time of the year also brings with it lots of time for reflection.   On one hand it's hard to fathom where the time is going.   Am I accomplishing anything?   Am I making a difference?   Yet on the other hand I feel as if there was plenty of time and I could have done more.   I did accomplish a lot this year though - I'm exhausted and looking forward to two weeks of pure relaxation and indulgence.

The simple things I want to do, the simple things I like to do.   That are purely just for me.   Shoot whatever I want.   Read.   Spend lots of "laughing" time with family and friends.   Sit and stare into space - thinking (something I'm very good at).   Sleeping-in (how yummy).   Taking road trips.   Updating my blog - finally!   Adding new stuff to my website.   Creating photographic art pieces for my Etsy storefront.   Oh!   Let's not forget sippin' on some hot coco!

I'm a hopeless romantic, an eternal optimist and I like to dream big!  On most days, I carry with me the belief that anything is possible...

What do you still believe in?
