Christmas holds a special place in my heart. It’s that one time of year where you get to see the family and the friends that you don’t get to often, the stores and streets are filled with joy and laughter as people begin to get in the holiday spirit, and everyone just seems happier. I’ve always been mesmerized by the lights and the decorations that not only bring a sparkle into our homes, but a sparkle into our lives.
Growing up I would always imagine what my life would be like during Christmas when I had a family of my own. I would dream of sitting around the tree Christmas morning while my kids opened their stockings and presents, while drinking hot coco and just thinking how lucky I am to have those little monkeys in my life.
Now that dream is about to be a reality.
This was my Last Christmas as just a normal teenager. Next Christmas, I’ll be a mom. A mom…now that’s a new name to get used to! As weird as it is for me to think of being a mom at 17, I wouldn’t change it for the world. Yes, my dream is turning into a reality a little sooner than I expected, but that’s okay. Everything happens for a reason, and I believe that the reasoning behind this is truly wonderful. I absolutely cannot wait for next Christmas when I’ll be able to witness the magical moment of Christmas through my childs eyes for the first time. I can only hope that my child will be as mesmerized by everything this holiday has to offer as I am.
I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Christmas and their holidays were filled with love, laughter, and happiness.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
