There is just something about receiving a package with your name on it in the mail that instantly brightens your day.
Oh. The. Anticipation!
I loved the beautifully wrapped gifts. I felt like a little kid again. (Just picture me jumping up & down in my kitchen, while clapping my hands. Yes. I know. I can’t help myself. Hey, I was excited).
After I ripped the wrapping paper off like a mad woman, throwing it in all directions. (A piece or two, may or may not have ended up hanging from the light fixture above the island). I was shocked by all the great goodies that I discovered.
A snowman… My secret Santa is a genius. I have just recently started collecting them and I was thrilled to have another.
Yankee Candle… It doesn’t get much better than this. (My husband loves this scent!)
A beautiful sparkling ornament
A cute Christmas coffee mug that is just begging me to make some hot chocolate.
Speaking of chocolates… My kids loved these. I didn’t keep a close enough eye on them and they were devoured.
The Christmas pillow says it all. Lauren likes to read it each morning. It has become part of her daily routine.
And a notebook that makes me want to write. It is beautiful. Pinks. Blues. Paisleys. Roses. Most definitely a version of heaven for me.
And suddenly, my world is brighter.
I am so thankful to my secret Santa and amazed at how well he/she seemed to know me (and I haven’t made that easy lately… I haven’t blogged in quite sometime). You have brightened my day. I really appreciate being thought of.
Merry Christmas everyone. I hope everyone enjoys celebrating Jesus’ birthday today!
