celebrating the holidays

08 December 2014

I absolutely LOVE this time of the year. Its my favorite time for so many different reasons! The atmosphere is so amazing. Everyone is so cheerful and it really is the best time of the year. I start decorating for Christmas as soon as I can, because I love having my tree up. Watching Christmas movies, drinking hot cocoa, wrapping presents, and seeing Christmas lights are just a couple of my favorite thinks to do! What do you like to do this time of the year? One big thing about Christmas is giving. I feel so fortunate to have so much in my life, its really easy in today's society to compare yourself to others and feel like your life could be better. But this time of the year, we really should all take a look at how lucky we really are.

One of my absolute favorite things to do during Christmas is give back. There are so many people in this world that don't have much and this season is one that I want to make sure they have a little more! I love getting presents for kids in need, Sub for Santa is one of my favorites. Putting a smile on a child's face Christmas morning is worth more than any present I could get. I also love getting supplies for shelters, this year I'm donating to shelters that simply just need toiletries. There are so many little things we take for granted that so many people that want so badly. Giving is probably one of the most gratifying presents I've ever received so I challenge y'all to give back this year :)
