What The Holidays Mean To Me

Hey y'all!
It's finally that time of year that we all love. Cold weather, hot cocoa, delicious food, sparkly apparel, aloe infused socks...ok that last one is my fav. Growing up in VA the holidays meant so much. All the snow, bumper to bumper traffic for holiday shopping, family dinners. Living in AZ and FL the past few years has made me miss all that. Minus the traffic. People think I'm nuts when I say I miss the snow. My husband can't stand it.

The holidays to me Duh! Idk if it's just me, but I'm dreading the hot months just waiting from November to come around. I love when fashionistas start layering. It takes some knowledge to know how to stack your apparel. I, for one, love to layer but of course I live in Florida so it doesn't last very long. Just one reason why I want to move. I need my cold weather! 

Another thing I love is music! Who doesn't love Christmas music!? I owe it all to my mom and stepdad. When us kids were little, they would play the oldies when we'd put all the decorations up and on Christmas while we got ready for the day. Oh and while we're on the subject,  let me tell y' parents would make us eat breakfast, brush our teeth, and get dressed, all before we could open our gifts. Torture I tell ya! Brayden wouldn't dare let me do that to him. Lol. 

One last and important thing I love about the holidays is coming together. Whether it be family, friends, coworkers, or maybe people you barely know. This year, I'm thankful to have my mom and sister with us. My husband isn't here this year so it really makes it easier. Plus I have her to make some awesome food! I also have my coworkers. When we're altogether, it doesn't really feel like we're working. (But we do, I swear!) Each person brings something they think another will enjoy. Whether it be a gift or food. We love food there!
