a short post with an awkward photo at the end.


All of my shopping is officially done. I rampaged through about fifteen stores at the mall today, amidst the mile-long line for Santa and the frazzled moms and the shirtless Abercrombie models (sheesh). 



Buying lots of stuff for people is one of my favorite things to do. :) It's an addiction inherited from my Christmas-junkie mother. 


Like I said, I love Christmas. At the beginning of the season, sometimes I'm like "oh boy. I don't know if I'm ready for all the business/stress/craziness" but then I get neck-deep in everything and I'm like "THESE ARE THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE."


Crazy-beautiful stars tonight, sprinkles whenever I want them, and hot chocolate always & forever.

Life is very, very good.
