I can't believe we're into the month of December already you guys!

Does anyone else love the time leading up to Christmas just as much, if not more, than Christmas? I just love all the fun things that come along with the holiday season. The feeling that the month of December brings is really like no other.

The lights, the window displays, the family get togethers, the red cups at Starbucks, the Christmas parties, the music, the glittery clothes, the food, the movies...ahhhh, the movies! I have watched more Christmas movies over the last couple of weeks than I think I have in all of my 31 years of life combined! And I'm not talking about your classic Christmas movies. Nope, I'm talking about the cheesy Hallmark ones. Oh how I love those Hallmark movies!

This weekend officially kick started the Christmas festivities. Saturday night I went out for dinner and drinks with some friends, and it was the perfect way to start the season of the red lip! Since I'm more of a natural lipstick lover, this is the month I try and force myself to take any red lipsticks I own out of hibernating, at least for a few weeks.

Since my parents are spending Christmas at my sister's in Toronto this year, we had to have our family get together (on my mom's side) on Sunday. My mom and aunt put together a trivia game with questions about all of our family members and we had so much fun taking turns hearing everyone's answers. It was such a great day spending it together.

So much has changed with our family over the last few years. We've not only gained some family members, but have also lost some too. This family of mine is, hands down, the strongest group of people I know, and each and every one of them means so much to me.

Last week also came with our first official snow fall. Now while I don't normally love to see snow, I do welcome it with open arms during the month of December. I think we can all agree it really adds to the feeling of the season!! Nothing beats snuggling underneath warm blankets while your Christmas tree lights are on and the snow is falling so pretty outside. 

I have a feeling that this is going to be a pretty great month!

What are some of your favourite things about the holiday season?

Until next time.
