It's Beginning to Feel A Lot Like Christmas!

I love Christmas. I mean, I heart/adore/squeal with glee/looooooooooooooooove Christmas. I know it's still over a month away, but I am gearing up to go into full swing Christmas mode.

Did you know that Aretha Franklin is coming out with a Christmas CD this year? Oh yes. I think Scott cringed when I told him about this cd (twice). I have the most robust Holiday music collection of anyone I know. From Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Take 6 and Brian McKnight to Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera, you name it and I likely have it. I like to fill our 5 disc cd player with holiday music and get my bake on. In fact, if I'm doing anything Christmas related, I must be serenaded with yule tunes. And if I'm driving, and it happens to be snowing out? I'm in heaven with my Tony Bennet Christmas album playing full blast.

I'm so in love with this season, that I can't help myself but buy all of the December issues of magazines I normally shun. Red cover with baked goods or celebrities in Santa hats? Must haves by my standards. And Christmas decorations? Don't get me started. Every year my mom, Jennifer and I do a three way ornament exchange. I search for weeks for the perfect ornament to share with them. One of my favourite things about going home for Christmas is seeing my mom's tree covered in the very same decorations I have on my tree at home. I really am a hopeless Christmas romantic.

Stay tuned for many for Christmas posts to come (I just can't help myself).


  1. May I be the first to wish you Merry Christmas, my dear.
