Christmas is Coming...

“"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best -- " and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called” ~ Winnie the Pooh

That is exactly how I'm feeling today. I LOVE Christmas. I love everything about it- the giving of gifts, the merriment, the decorations, the magic that is in the air... Something about every minute of the days and weeks leading up to the holiday seems to be charged with electricity. But right around now I start to get a little sad because I know that soon it will all be over. So I spent today relishing every minute of this fantastic season.

I started off by getting a Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks. I adore those things!!! I wait for them to come out every year and have to indulge a few times per season. Yum-it's like Christmas in a cup. My cup this morning was perfect, and definitely got me jazzed up for a day of Christmas errands.

I headed into town and picked up the last few gifts, some christmas cards and then it was off to the grocery store! Frito Lay has asked me to come up with some holiday dip recipes for them (yum!) so I stopped off to pick up the needed ingredients. One is done and man, it is addictive!!!

How are you feeling about Christmas? Excited or stressed this year?
