9 Christmas Favorites

IMG_0398

Christmas is coming up so quickly, and I can hardly believe that it is only nine days away! In honor of this countdown, I thought it would be fun to share nine things that I love about this time of the year…

  1. The lights– Christmas lights make me so happy! My family often dedicates a night to view lights around town a few days before Christmas.
  2. Egg nog (non alcoholic)– I have an obsession with this seasonal beverage.
  3. Shopping– As stressful as it may be at times, I really enjoy Christmas shopping and finding special gifts to give my friends/family.
  4. Music– I may sound crazy, but I usually start listening to Christmas music November 1st because I love it so much!
  5. Cookies– I always look forward to eating that sweet batch of Christmas cookies.
  6. Family– I really love it when family and friends gather to celebrate.
  7. Christmas Dinner– Those of you who have been following my blog for awhile probably know that I absolutely love food, and Christmas dinner is the best!
  8. Wrapping gifts– It is so fun to wrap gifts and place them under the tree.
  9. Movies– There is no better way to get in the Christmas mood than to snuggle up in a nice, fuzzy blanket and watch holiday movies!

Do you like any of these things too? Did I miss anything?

Thanks for reading, and have a great week! 🙂

I have been on this earth for 15 years, and life has been such an outstanding journey! It is awesome to look back at all of the things that I have learned and how far I have come throughout my life… I can’t even begin to say how incredibly grateful I am to have such supportive friends, family, and followers that keep me on my feet each and everyday. You ALL make my life so wonderful and it is such a pleasure to share my journey with all of you here, on Maysa Rose. As I make a wish and blow out the candles of an extremely special birthday cake, I realize… I am going to see Phantom of the Opera!!!!!
