Does it seem like Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year, or is it just me?
Last week, I opened my mail only to discover three Christmas magazines. I'm sorry, but the last time I checked Halloween's not even here yet. Gheez. And want to know the worst part? I scanned through all the magazines...looking for Christmas presents to buy!
Although Christmas is one of my favorite times of year, I want to slow down the pace. I want to savor the changing leaves, the crisp autumn weather, and enjoy hay rides with the kids. I want to carve pumpkins, drink hot apple cider, and snuggle under a warm blanket in front of a bonfire. I want to take long walks in the woods and shuffle my feet in the fallen leaves. I think Mia wrote about high school Friday night football games the other day. Who can remember those times? *sigh* Simple pleasures.
Take time to enjoy today because you never know what's waiting around the corner...
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
