25 days of christmas

What does Christmas mean to me now?

Hi Aspirers!

As life change so does the holidays. When we get older we start viewing things differently such as Christmas. Thinking back as a child, all I thought about was gifts, gifts, and more gifts. Now I see as a day off of work and feasting. I forget about gifts and think only about rest and holiday dinner. When you’ve been stressed all year long and Christmas is a guaranteed day off, that’s something to look forward to. Family and blessings are what I think about everyday of the year so I don’t dedicate Christmas day just for that. I dedicated that day for me. Giving me time to rest and receiving hours of sleep.

When ever that day comes when I have children of my own then the meaning of Christmas will change once again because my view will change. I believe what we are currently going through will not only effect our daily life but our views on holidays too.

Ha-Ha for the holidays

Hi Aspirers!

Tis the season to share and I wanted to share with you a ha-ha moment in my life for the holidays. When I was younger and my sister came in to town for the holidays. I had to be younger that 10. She was in her early 20s. She brought in one of her friends to town from college and we were at the dinner table. For some reason it was either her or I brought up her past boyfriends. All of a sudden I started rambling all the boys she had dated at the table. Her face was in shock because she had no clue how I would of remembered all those names. It was really embarrassing to her because it was at the dinner table. LOL

Do any of you have any ha-ha moments for the holidays? Comment below.

Oh What’s That Smell

Hi Aspirers!

Smell is one of the five senses that can take you back to a specific moment in time and for me the smell of a fresh Christmas tree put a smile on my face. I love waking up in the morning and walking around the house with that smell. A few years ago my mom bought a fake Christmas tree and the smell through the house was gone. Every season when I’m driving my Christmas tree lots or grocery stores I take the time to smell the trees. That smell takes me back to my childhood.

Do you love the smell of Christmas trees? What is your favorite smell for the holiday?Comment below.
