take my hand, take my life [userpic]
It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...

I truly love this time of year.

For the past few weeks, Christmas shopping has consumed the majority of my time, and although malls crowded with impatient people aren't my favorite, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I absolutely love buying gifts for other people. Is there anything better than seeing the look of happiness and gratitude on the face of someone you love and knowing that you're responsible for it?

Last year I spent Christmas in Hawaii, and although the weather was much nicer, it just couldn't compare to being home for the holidays. I didn't get to decorate a tree. I didn't get to dig out the Christmas decorations that I grew up with. I didn't get to see a beautiful fresh snowfall. Don't get me wrong, I'll take a sandy beach over a snowy sidewalk anyday, but there's just something very wrong about walking around in a tank top and shorts on Christmas day! It just didn't feel like Christmas.

It was my first Christmas with my current boyfriend, and I didn't even really get to talk to him via phone (unless you count those rushed calling card conversations). I am definitely looking forward to being with him this year. Even though the Glassjaw show we were planning to attend on the 26th was cancelled, I know it's going to be an amazing Christmas. Who knows? I might just give in and go to Hatebreed with him instead.

Now that we have our Christmas tree (though we have yet to adorn it), and I have a stack of presents all wrapped and topped with bows, glitter and ribbons, I find myself getting more and more excited for the 25th. I can't wait to have a house, husband and kids of my own so I can start my own family traditions and of course, continue some of my favorites (like getting new pjs on Christmas Eve so we all look pretty for Christmas morning pictures). It's a beautiful time of year.


<3 you all.

Current Mood: bouncy
Current Music: My little taco bell dog saying "Happy New Year, Amigos"

i love christmas too! best time of the year by far

awesome! <3

Oh wow! Hawaii for Christmas last year? That sounds wonderful. Must've been nice. I want to go there one day in my life. But I don't know if I'll get that chance. :/ Eh..

I need to get into the Christmas spirit! Every year it seems to fade more and more. I miss it! I see lights and I don't feel nothing. Things are just not the same as they used to be. I'm looking forward to it and all. But I guess I just grew out of it a little too soon. Or just became numb to everything? Beats me.

It was the most beautiful place with the most beautiful people... truly amazing. I am dying to go back. I went with a friend whose mom lives there.

A few weeks ago I was NOT looking forward to Christmas as all because of issues with my family and not having a lot of money, etc. but now, I realize how much I still love this time of year more than any other, and I enjoy decorating and giving gifts SO much. My sister and I are finally getting along, and my boyfriend and I are better than ever, so they make the holidays that much better and I look forward to spending time with them. It definitely isn't the same as when I was younger, but what is? haha I hope you get in the spirit because it's a wonderful feeling. <3

awwww! My Lysie is "bouncy"! That is the cutest thought in the world! I remember BOUNCY LYSIE from dance and ES class... *Sniffle sniffle* oooo, the memories

'Tis I....BOUNCY LYSIE! I miss those classes and YOU so much. I haven't been the same kind of bouncy ever since prom. :/ You guys made me that way. I loved to entertain you all. I also really miss the food fights at lunch...throwing food at keyana is fun!
