The first snowfall.

Hi friends. I know you've been on the edge of your seat ever since I revealed the Christmas Dilemma. And I'm quite pleased to announce that said dilemma has been resolved for 2011. The day after I wrote requesting your thoughts, I stumbled upon round-trip non-stop flights for $400 total. Certainly more than I normally would like to spend, but it puts me in Maine just in time for Christmas festivities with my family. So, given the situation, it was just what I was hoping for. Though it breaks my heart to leave Adrian on Christmas Day. One day he won't have to work and we'll be able to travel together and spend more than just Christmas Eve as a normal couple. Until then, we make the best of what we have.

On a side note, Christmas decorations will make their entrance this week. Yes. This week.

Perhaps not the tree. That's just too soon. But lights? Yes, please.

We had our first snowfall today. Big flakes that melted as soon as they landed and lasted no more than fifteen minutes. But those fifteen minutes were magical. Especially because I enjoyed them from the comforts of a window. Encouraged by the first snowfall, Adrian and I have decided to bring out the Christmas decorations and my nephew has been glued to the front window, patiently waiting for more flurries. We even checked the forecast. No more flurries in the next ten days.

There's something so wonderful about the first snowfall. Though outwardly I display a bit more self-restraint than my five year old nephew, inside I'm five and glued to the window, too. So let's bring out the cozy Christmas lights. Light some cinnamon apple candles. Heat up some hot chocolate and wait for that first snowfall.

And when it comes, you can find me snuggled up with a blanket by the front window. Enjoying it with that husband of mine.

Thank you for your thoughts and words on the Christmas dilemma. More insights to come, my friends??
