I'm sure I've made a similar post before, but this time of year is so dark and gloomy. I love it when it starts to get chilly and dark for Halloween, but right after it I usually begin to experience seasonal effective disorder. I never really got into Christmas, but in more recent years I've loved putting lights on the house to add some cheer to the long winter season. Last year was our first Christmas tree for my husband and I and the first for either of us in our adult lives for years. Today we got our tree all bought and set up. I spent the evening decorating it which is so much fun for me. The house smells amazing and the lights are so wonderful. Even the glass ornaments glow from within.
Here's to a happy safe warm winter to all!
