I’m happy to see November go. There were a few rough times there (*cough election cough*) and, I’ll admit, it was quite stressful to come up with something to write about every day for 30 straight days.
Independent of Novembers in general or this crazy one, I love the month of December. It’s the month of Lizzie’s birthday and Christmas and time to take stock of the last year. Things are go-go-go in holiday prep then they slow down nicely when the actual holidays are here. Okay, it’s also nice that it’s not too chilly yet with little snow chance (have I mentioned how much I dislike snow?).
I’m hoping to be around here a little more often this month, though the pace will certainly slow from last month. In particular, I’m going to try a little something: 12 Days of Christmas Prep. I’ve seen quite a few other bloggers do this sort of thing in the past and it was really interested to see how they prepare to celebrate. Decorations, present-purchasing, family traditions – yet another peak into their lives that I love.
So…I’ll be counting down those last 12 days before Christmas with a post each day about, well, how we’re preparing for Christmas. I’m pretty excited, even though I don’t even have a whole 12 post ideas yet.
Are you a December fan? What do you like most about it (or least, for that matter)?
