I'm sitting here. Alone at my kitchen table. Our Christmas lights are twinkling in our dark home (it's only around 5pm, and yes, it's dark outside.) I have my Pandora radio stationed to Classical Christmas - it's giving me goosebumps and making me want to cry it's so beautiful.*
I love Christmas time, and the memories that flood in from my childhood. Being a kid really was a magical ride...sometimes I can't believe it all flew by so fast. And here I am, about to bring a new child into the world. I hope I make her life as full and sparkly as my parents made it for me. I think I miss my mom right now.
I'll be making all of her special Christmas cookies tonight. Wish me luck, I've never made any of them before!!
*eh - crying isn't so big of a deal these days. I'm pregnant, and a sob-face anyway.
