Can you feel it? Just four more days until Christmas!
I have nothing but baking and enjoying company on the horizon and it feels sooooo good.
I spent the last couple of days with my mom helping her finish up and just enjoying my time with her. I don't know when it happened (I was not a lot of fun for her in high school, I'm sure...) but she is absolutely one of my very best friends and I so love my time with her.
I am just about to get in the car and head home so full and yet so empty...
As most of you know, this is our first Christmas without my sweet daddy and so many things are bittersweet. He was a large presence in our home so his not being here is evident at every turn, and yet somehow the memory of him will not allow us to do anything except enjoy the season he adored. Does that make any sense?
So this Christmas is for you dad. You are missed with every fiber of my being but it would be selfish of me to say I wish you were here instead of in heaven. So dance a sweet father daughter dance for me and I will see you again one Christmas soon.
