Apparently I am the only person in blogville who has not posted anything Christmas, or holiday related. It’s not that I don’t believe in the true meaning of Christmas, it’s that we don’t get all caught up in the hype of it all. Everyone is posting about how hectic this time of year is, and how much they need to do, or shop for. Me, not so much.
Sure, when my boys were little Christmas was different. It’s fun when you have kids. I was every bit as excited as they were on Christmas morning. I remember waking them up on a few mornings because I was excited to see them excited. But I never went hog wild buying them stuff. I didn’t have the money, and they certainly didn’t need very much.
But now, it’s just us in the desert.
We don’t really celebrate, and that’s OK.
We don’t need to buy each other anything, we have all we need, and no space for anything else anyway. In fact, the only people I do buy for are my two little nieces, because it’s all about the kids.
Christmas is special to me for more reasons than one though. 7 years ago on Christmas, Al proposed to me. That changed my life in all the best ways. I married my best friend and soul mate. We get to live this adventurous life, and we love every minute of it.
The other great thing is, Roxy has a birthday on Christmas day. She will be 10 years old. It hardly seems possible she has been in my life that long.
I love this little peanut.
Miss personality plus. Everyone loves her, and she loves her adoring public in return.
The holiday season is so many things, for so many people. No matter what, or even if, you celebrate.
I do want to wish everyone a fabulous Christmas, Hannukuh, holiday season, or maybe just a Happy New Year. I hope that 2015 is everything you need it to be.
