Well kiddos, it's July 26th. It is officially closer to next Christmas than it is to last Christmas! Let the countdown begin!
In this awful summer heat, I find myself yearning for all the things I like about the Christmas season: the chilly air, wearing beautiful scarves, the music, preparing for the big holiday, the sounds of synthesized bells....
Then I look outside at the world baking outside my window.
I am *so* ready for Christmas to be here.
