I want to take a moment on this Christmas Eve afternoon to wish you a Merry Christmas! I hope your Christmas is full of family, laughter, food, and celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ!christmas_blog

I’m sitting here uploading photos to clear off some memory cards, about to make a batch of cookies to leave out for Santa tonight, and waiting on my husband to get home with a new washer. (Our washing machine broke on Christmas Eve. Great timing, right?!) I’ve been incredibly frustrated this morning, but I’m choosing joy now. All of our Christmas decorations are not out, but I’m in a warm house with my little boys, puppy dog (she’s 7, but she’ll always be our puppy.), and my husband almost home. I have the means to go to the grocery store in a bit, and I’m going to smile through the crowds. Things could be so much worse, and I’m especially reminded that there are 27 families in Connecticut that would give anything to be dealing with only a broken washing machine today.

May your last week of 2012 be filled with choosing joy! I look forward to blogging more in the new year. Merry Christmas!!

We moved here when my youngest son was 5 1/2 weeks old, and I feel like a year and a half later I’m just beginning to figure out where certain things function well and truly belong. I hope you’ll join me as I navigate a simple life filled with the little moments that define me.
