Because The Book Said So

We started a tradition last year that we think will become a part of our yearly family Christmastime. The night we are going to decorate the tree, we all get to open a present with our new Christmas pajamas. We start a fire in the fireplace, blast the carols, and sip hot chocolate a little […]

2:32 am

It’s 2:11 am. Some might say that I’m crazy—doing everything that I do. I agree. But I’m crazy in the best way possible.
