It's Here!!! (I'm a spoiled brat)

I'm so excited. And let me tell you why.

I am almost 32 years old and for the past few years my Mom has taken to sending me and my sister (wherever we may be) a homemade, personalized advent calendar. Yahoo! It's December 1st and there in my mailbox is my advent calendar. It was conservatively dressed in a paper wrapped package but I knew what it was and could barely suppress my excitement as I headed for home.

If you haven't figured it out yet, I love Christmas. I'm a sucker for decorations, music, wrapping paper, cards and last but not least the spirit. Receiving my calendar just brought it all together. Every day from now until Christmas I get to open a tiny package. Inside each package is a little treat and a quote.

In today's package?

December, the diamond-frosted clasp linking
twelve jewelled months to yet another year.

And with it I received a wine glass charm. A Christmas tree no less! How fitting. Let me attach it to my wine glass as I sip between sentences.

Thanks Mom. You have no idea how much I enjoy these little treats and quotes that you time-consumingly and thoughtfully put together for me. Big hugs across the miles.

Don't you just love it?
