This time of year always reminds me of Christmas pasts. Especially now that my children have grown. Throughout the years I’ve had some pretty amazing holidays, filled with the laughter of my girls, exoctic trips, lavish gifts, some not so lavish and one I spent alone.
But one Christmas always takes me back to a special place, a place of innocence.
It was my first Christmas on my own. I had just moved to Salt Lake City, gotten married and was living on love. The one thing I wanted so much that year was snow. The apartment we lived in had a very large bay window that set at a 90 degree angle. I remember gazing out the window for hours at a time. I had made quite a comfortable spot, reading, designing and dreaming.
Those days were sprinkled with everything new. Such an adventure for young girl. My first love, my first apartment and my first Christmas with snow!
The view from my window seat was breathtaking. As I watched the world turn white and glisten, I remember thinking how magical everything was. It was a perfect evening that Christmas Eve, just he and I and the magic of Christmas. There I sat with my coffee, in my little corner of the world, little did I know I was making a memory, a memory that would last a lifetime!
Always remember you’re making memories ….
