Despite how hectic December was, it meant that I was able to be a part of a lot of amazing moments! It was the ending of a crazy year that I will forever cherish!
December 1st- Today, I practiced and completed my Honor’s presentation which was awesome! I prepped with a pumpkin bagel and pumpkin coffee by my side. Goals, am I right? 😉
December 5th- I was able to blast my music and put away my clothes as I spent some alone time to catch up on work. I was also able to converse with a friend for a little while and, hopefully, help bring clarity to their situation.
December 6th- Today, I studied my butt off for a final and all my hours of studying ended up paying off. In addition, I was able to finish the night with a treasured friend who always encourages me to strengthen my relationship with Jesus!
December 13- I accomplished a lot and still was able to spend time loving myself! Plus, I was able to go to Target…so that is always a plus! Thankful for the next few weeks before Christmas! I’m finally in the zone!
December 14- Ahhh, a lovely day because it started with two amazing puppies…one is eleven and the other is four months….and a grilled cheese! 🙂 In addition, I got to bake my favorite baked good: chocolate chip pumpkin muffins!
December 16- I got to take Christmas photos with my two doggies and Santa Clause! The highlight of the Christmas season!
December 17- Today was great, a Christmas movie and decorating for Christmas, my mini tree with an assortment of mini lights that I will put up in my room!
December 18- Today I felt pretty sick so I did not accomplish much but I was able to just remain calm and take the time I needed to rest. I spent time looking through photos from my phone for this year, journaled, watched a TV show, and watched the dog for about 3 hours. Little progress is important too 🙂 I need to keep reminding myself that 🙂
December 19- Today was another calm day. It is funny though because I watched my puppy…not calm, crazy…while balancing my day with my older dog, reading a book under a shared blanket as she took a nap. It’s the little things. <3
December 21- I was able to hang out with a group of amazing girls and have a photo shoot with some amazing memories!
December 22- Santa is coming?! Need I say more? 😉
December 24- Today I watched a Christmas movie with the family while being able to soak in all the love of such amazing and beautiful people. My friend invited me to join in on some family festivities and the love and excitement filled the room with an unspeakable peace that I am so thankful to have witnessed.
December 25 – Today was beautiful. Everyone got together to open presents and we completed our annual tradition of Gracie ripping up the wrapping and a pancake breakfast.
December 26- I went to IHOP with a good friend and caught up on the latest. It is such a fun time to get together with people and reflect.
December 27 This morning I was outside with my puppy getting her energy out. It was snowing very lightly and I was able to see the snowflakes as they fell on my coat. I have never been able to see a snowflake print in real life and it was such a surreal moment.
December 28 I was able to see my cousins, play Uno, have a dance party, and see love and happiness in the eyes of two adorable souls
