December 1st

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Yesterday bestie and I spent the whole day at her house crafting, playing, and eating yummy soup and grilled cheese. It was awesome. I love the time we get to spend together and I love that sweet boy.

We updated our shadow boxes for the month and decided to go with shimmery bells. Every time I look at it I think of my mom... she loves the story of the Polar Express. She read it to my brother and I when we were little and we've probably seen the movie a million times in the past 10 years. Every year she puts a bell in our stocking with a special note...her message is always the's one of faith and trust.  

Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see. 

Yall know I want to send you some bells too! :) and the piece of bakers twine so all you have to have is a frame... lucky you. I only had enough paper to punch out 3 sets, so email me fast! :)

also, and most importantly... today is the first day of Advent...
I'd love it if you took the time to watch this video and think about what Christmas means to you...
no pressure. just love.

I was already having a pretty special day working on your Dad's special gift--but now you've put me over the edge. I love being your mom!
