Let the Countdown Begin
Inspired by Ali Edwards, I put together this "December Daily" mini-album last week. It will feature our daily activities/traditions/preparations for Christmas during this month. A great way to document the magical little moments that might otherwise be overlooked in the rush to get things bought, wrapped, shipped, baked, cleaned, written, caroled, decorated, and serviced. (I don't believe in rushing, but unfortunately it seems to believe in me.)
Most importantly, I want it to be a reminder that this season isn't about "things" at all - it's about time: time with family, time pondering about our Savior's birth and life, and time given in service to others. I hope this month will be time spent meaningfully.
December 1st: Christmas music makes cleaning house so much more enjoyable. Even the dishes - and that's a tall order.
