Hello Holidays!!!

I love how before the month of Christmas  there is thanksgiving and Halloween.  I don't know about others but I see those as purely time lines for us to realize that Christmas is coming!  I can't wait for it too! I mean every year is a little bit more impressive then the next. This year (disclaimer, don't do the awh sad voice after you read the next sentence, I am not heartbroken) This will be my first Christmas with out my grandmother, despite my heartfelt sorrow that she is gone, I know she is looking down upon on us.  The fact that she is gone I find myself having more desire to do things that are out of the ordinary for my "normal"  Christmas.  The past memories are amazing and will never be forgotten but the new ones will  help! 
Well the day after thanksgiving you will find our house almost exploding with Christmas cheer. This is one of our trees, this one is the living  room with our over done but just to the right level  before it becomes obnoxious.  The ability to have christmas around ALL month is amazing!  I can't wait to decorate my own house... I have learned from watching, I will probably go with a theme of colors rather than an explosion, but only time will tell what I end up doing!

Our family is filled with traditions that make any heart happy. You will find us writing letters to Santa, which at the ripe age of 23 I will still do... our town has a great little program that children that write letters will get a hand written letter back from Santa!  We have letters from every Christmas!!! We also take our Santa pictures the day after thanksgiving.  We will do that every year then when we have kids we will do it with our families and siblings! On Christmas eve we have my whole family and friends for dinner.  Us kids at night sprinkle oats with sparkles and a saying...  don't laugh it is true, we are a sucker for traditions! Then we all wait until morning and "santa"  comes!  
Well now that I have covered the traditions, I want to spice this year up a bit!  I have always  wished we were the type of family that did fancy Christmas parties with a lot of people, but  we aren't doesn't mean I wont be one day. I also want to adventure to some of the lights displays like Zoo lights, or Leavenworth!  I really want to go down to Seattle and see the lights!  I plan on making Christmas a bit more fun and develop some of my own traditions outside  of my family!  

What does your family do for traditions? What are traditions you wish to make?!

When love might not be enough

Whether it is be your choice or fates choice, you can't help who you fall in love with... but families seem to think there is a divine decision that they get to play a part of. It is the most self esteem squishing moment when you find out that your loved ones family might not be fond of you, or think you are the right match. Because in your eyes and your loved ones eyes you both are perfect for each other which very well could be the case but marrying the love of your life means marrying their family.... I was out last night talking to some drunk girl at the bar and she was talking about a very similar situation that I am in. Her husbands parents were not fond of her despite how good of a girl she is, she just didn't fit the family mold. As a female this is SO disheartening because we as women want everyone to like us, especially our husbands mother!!! Her advice to me was stop caring, if your husband has chosen you and wants to spend the rest of his life with you, don't worry about the parents-in-law, in the long run they are going to see how happy you make their son, and if they can't love you for that... they aren't worth trying to make love you. The more women I talk to about parents-in-law not like the newest addition or the speaking of bring these people into family the more common I find it.. I am so glad that I am not anomaly in this situation... I am merely an addition to the tons and tons of women who have to deal with it... All I can do is promise to not give a reason for them to not like me, but I will not change who I am to make them like me...
On top of knowing that his family may not be my biggest cheerleaders in wanting to marry their son, I find out that my father is basically feeling the same way his father feels... There is no winning in love I guess.... it all comes down to hoping and praying that love will be enough to get through the tough times because we both know that love has gotten us this far... who says it won't keep on going for the next 50-100 years..... Love conquers all, I believe in love therefore I believe in its power to overcome even the most difficult of obstacles.....

Never again in this lifetime .....

11/11/11 is now.... 12/12/12 next year...but what happens after 12/12/12? Did you know that after December twelfth two-thousand and twelve for next 989 years we will never have a "lucky" day like that again? There is so much hype and superstitions that has been places on these triple number days, weddings, lotto's have been bought, casino’s get high visits, many movie releases take advantage of this, many wishes have been said and lots of hope has been put on these days. It is definitely something to think of knowing that your kids, grand kids, great grandkids, great- great-grandkids, great- great-grandkids….. great- great- great- great- great- great- great- great-grandkids will not experience the hype on these magical days . I mean for some this may not seem like anything but, it gets the brain working, what else will they not know that we hold dear to us? What is going to lost generation to generation? What can we do to preserve it?

Realization, inspiration, desire, and set back

Sorry for the writers block, life has been interesting without being writers worthy... But I am sure I can find something! I have moved my life to try and become more "organic" based, don't go thinking it will be come this snooty way of eating...but instead learning and practicing these habits now will only help me in my future living. I want to live more natural, I started with my skin care seeing that I am going into skin care here in the next month and I want to learn how to best give people a natural way to up keep their skin. My goal is to open my own spa and invent a line based off this idea of natural products and natural services....
Welp, writers block is back...
type ya later :)
