White Christmas!!

Or as close as it is gonna get for me! I bought a 6.5 ft white tree for my apartment. Pre-lit! That's the best kind. I couldn't wait to put it up so last night I put on You've Got Mail, ate a bowl of Fruit Loops then put up my tree! I was kinda sad that I was doing it by myself. I would have rather been putting it up with Heath, but he is out of town for a couple days and I just couldn't bring myself to watch it sit in that box. I think it is so pretty! I don't have a topper for it just yet. There is a REALLY cute sugar cookie shaped one at Target but I kinda want one that lights up so....I'm gonna wait until I find the one I want. But here it is for now!

As you can see........

I'm getting into the holiday spirit. Thanksgiving isn't quite here, but I'm following the lead of every other holiday lover. I've added some new ornaments in my shop. They haven't gotten as many views as my other ornaments got. But I think they are really cute. I'll just use them myself if they don't sell.

I can't believe how fast this year has flown by. It's really insane how many things have changed since I graduated last August and moved to Houston. And I tend to get caught up in all the negative things and forget to look at all the blessings I have been given. Mine and Heath's relationship has really had a chance to grow even deeper. It's like crawling under a cozy blanket and feeling this amazing sense of ..... warmth and love and everything good in life. I'm going to marry him! In less than 7 months! The Lord has blessed us with giving Heath a part time job while he is working on his masters so that we don't go broke living off my meager wages. My family is...well, they are still my family. Gotta love 'em. Thorns and all. :D Life is good. I wish I always saw it that way. But when I begin to get down on myself I am reminded that my life would look like royalty to some. I have a nice place to live, a car that despite how crappy it is starting to look (totally my fault), still gets me where i need to go. I have money to buy whatever food i desire, no serious illnesses and lots of people who care about me. I am truly blessed. I hope you feel the same way.
