it's so great to have ceej back home again. what relief.
we spent our day together yesterday looking for a christmas tree
in the freezing cold weather...it was one of those days where the sun
tricks you into thinking you don't need your thickest coat.
so, our looking for a tree was sped up by my need to get warm.
luckily, we found a nice wild-grown tree that a nice farmer had grown just for us (right?).
this is why i enjoy christmas so much. christmas day is not, actually, my favorite...
all of the festivities that lead up to it are such a joy:
finding a tree, trimming it, listening to the songs we always listen to,
making the cookies and candies i make every year,
walking up and down the streets to see everybody's pretty lights.
christmas day is lovely...but not as lovely as the entire month leading up to it.
so glad i get to spend most of this month with my favorite person ever.
more of our christmas tree shenanigans tomorrow.
