As we begin to anticipate and prepare for an epic journey this season I find myself getting more and more excited.
Not for things. Things are cool but are really just STUFF. And we have much to much of that anyway.
I find myself anticipating TIME and EXPERIENCES far more than what kind of gadgets we can blow all of our money on.
I look forward to edible trees and snowman pancakes and a trip to the aquarium and songs in the car and route 66 and crafty hours and singing songs around the piano and the joy and merriment of BEING TOGETHER. Perhaps a round of Muppetopoly or Bezzerwizzer. or both.
I love to GIVE gifts and wish I thought about it more during the year so I wouldn't feel crunched with a deadline.
So here's to the Holiday Spirit.
