I hope this Christmas season brings you joy and peace. I hope you are able to set aside quiet afternoons reflecting on the sweet coming of Jesus, lazy mornings watching timeless Christmas movies, beautifully decorated Christmas cookies (and if you can't decorate them, that your artist sister-in-law does), and I hope you are able to visit family and friends - far and wide. If you can, gather around some tasty crepes and drink mint hot chocolate while you laugh and laugh. If you're lucky, your in-laws will make you delicious Brunswick stew and Wassle, your sister's puppy will play with yours, and your mom will show you a trunk full of volumes and volumes of a lifetime of photos that you can successfully trap your husband into rummaging through with you.
Also, listen to my friend Allison's amazing Christmas soundtrack. It will make you very happy :)
