Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE this time of year. Just the thought of fall/Christmas and all the decorations makes me so happy and excited I nearly tear up. Seriously. As you can see from a previous post done by my mom here, I don't waste any time! (You'll notice that post was made in October!) I've already had the few fall decorations Karl and I have set up in our little place for a couple of weeks. And last week, a Christmas song came on shuffle on my ipod and I wasn't strong enough to hit 'next'. I sang along to every word and have since been infected. I just love this time of year so much I have a hard time keeping the different holidays separate! However, unlike in years past, instead of having family/friends and employers tell me I'm crazy and say I'm not allowed to listen to Christmas music in the office until after Halloween... I now have a husband that shares my love and uncontrolled excitement for the season! Instead of turning the Christmas music off in September... He smiles and sings along!
When Karl and I first started hanging out, we discovered our shared love for EVERYTHING about this time of year. We sort of jokingly made a list of awesome things to do in the winter to have the best Christmas ever. I should have known right then I'd marry him. Now that we are married, I think it really will be the best Christmas ever! I'm so excited to share my family's traditions with him and to be a part of my new family's traditions as well. And if everything goes according to plan... We may be spending our first Christmas together in our first HOUSE!! (girly squeals of excitement)
It's almost October and then it's officially THE season! Now all we have to do is find that list!
