Growing up December was the longest month of the year. Opening up the tiny paper doors on the advent calendar to reveal the little chocolate pieces underneath was the highlight of the day because it meant Christmas was one day closer. As I've gotten older I've realized how much I really love Christmas, for different reasons than when I was growing up. Understanding Christ's birth and remembering family traditions makes me so happy. Another difference between now and when I was little is that Christmas flies by. Do you agree? I used to be one of those people who refused to think about Christmas until after Thanksgiving. But I no longer think 25 days is long enough to enjoy the holiday season. I'm not supporting the stores bringing out the trees in August by any means but right now Christmas is happily on my mind. 

'Tis Almost The Season!

One reason Christmas has been on my mind is because over the weekend I added some Christmas lovelies to my Etsy store. 
It's been a lot of fun and it inspired me to host a little giveaway. Today I won some lovely treasures from Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose and I wanted to spread the love and give away some Christmas goodies from my shop

And so here we go.
