“Christmas… that magic blanket that wraps itself about us, that something so intangible that it is like a fragrance. It may weave a spell of nostalgia. Christmas may be a day of feasting, or of prayer, but always it will be a day of remembrance — a day in which we think of everything we have ever loved.”
Augusta E. Rundel
What/who/how are you loving these days? Is it different than what you loved when you were little?

I am loving creating. Which I think is what I loved as a child but I didn’t have much freedom to do so, too busy with school and such. I also think I loved getting gifts more then. Now I honestly get more joy out of making and giving them.
As the years go by I seem to have lost that giddy feeling that usually comes this time of year. I do hope the future Christmases are more exciting for me as I am loking forward to creating more special traditions for my family as they get older. Just had my second baby in September so having 2 under 2 hasn’t let as much energy for crafting as I would have liked.
But I am loving family right now with a warmth that hasn’t really been present before.
Absolutely! I used to love ‘things’ and now I love moments…time. I am loving time with my children, time that I get to create something, time with my husband, etc. Those are the moments I cherish now and thankfully they happen everyday, not just once a year. 🙂 And I totally agree with renee, I have to say that I loved creating as a girl too, but I lost that along the way for too long…and now I’m enjoying it again, maybe even more so.
when I was a child I loved the decorations and food and anticipation…now as a parent I love watching my children love the decorations, the food, and the anticipation!
I almost think it is better as a parent! Kim
