Can you believe this is the last month of 2012? Where the heck did this year go? I love December. It has always been my favorite month. Maybe, because I love the smell of cookies baking in the oven, pine trees, and cinnamon-scented pine cones. Or maybe it is because I enjoy ice skating, watching Christmas movies, or wearing cozy pajamas. I love looking at all the lights, watching people shop (and doing some shopping myself), and listening to Nat King Cole sing “The Christmas Song”. I love “The Christmas Song”; it is the sound of Christmas. This time of the year is always so nostalgic. It reminds me of all the happy memories my family shared growing-up. December helps me forget about worries. It makes me love more, and helps me go into January feeling happy and ready for something new. I’ve decided to make a December Bucket List. I encourage you to do the same!
