This week was everything the first week of the holiday season should be.
The snowfall came right on schedule, we got our stockings hung, the tree trimmed, and Daniel even got our lights up on the house.
I feel like I live in Whoville right now, and it is wonderful.
On top of that, this week I visited the Festival of Trees, attended a Mistletoe mixer in the mountains, watched the snow fall til 2am last night, and went to the Country Club's annual Christmas Party tonight.
Everything truly is bright and merry this time of year.
I don't know what it is, but the holiday magic seems very tangible this year.
I'm doing my best to grab on to it and enjoy every minute.
