Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. – Roald Dahl (found via here.) That quote epitomizes the “Christmas spirit,” doesn’t it? I woke up this morning expecting magic – holiday music drifting through the house, a roaring fire in front of the sparkling tree, sweet sticky buns and coffee for breakfast – and magic is just what I found. My husband and I arrived back to Austin late last night, and we’ll be spending a cozy day together unwrapping presents, and later going to my British mother-in-law’s house for her traditional roast dinner. This time of year, I always spend some time in self-examination, writing in my journal and deciding on my New Year’s “word” (remember last year’s?) that will define 2012. I’m looking forward to the quiet week ahead to do just that (and maybe hit up some after-Christmas sales too, of course!) Hope you’re all having a peaceful and blessed day, and merry merry to all my dear readers…you guys mean so much to me!
