While waiting on our Ben, the holidays were always a hard time for me. For the last few years, I haven't wanted to be home for Christmas. It was a marker of another year that had passed- another year with just two stockings to hang from the mantle.
So, I was pretty stoked to get a special delivery this week:
Since I am a firm believer in NO CHRISTMAS BEFORE THANKSGIVING (a post for another time), they will have to stay in the box for a few more weeks. But, I sure do look forward to decorating my mantle this year!
