the countdown to christmas is always filled with cheer.
one can’t help but to be very merry.
i love savoring the entire month of december,
celebrating a bit of christmas with each passing day.
and this year is no different.
same merriment. same joy.
but with a new little addition.
our littlest family advent calendar.
instead of gifts,
each day will have either
a little activity for my lovie and i to do together.
an act of kindness towards someone we love.
or some sweet treats.
