Every year we bundle up, grab our cameras and head down to the tree lighting in Pioneer Square. It's the little traditions that make me so happy during the holiday season. This tree lighting was extra special for me this year because it was the first time I got to spend it with a significant other :). I cannot wait for finals to be over and to be home with boyfriend and our friends. I also can't wait to start crossing things off my christmas to-do list. Some items include: watching ALL the christmas movies I love (Elf, The Holiday, Home Alone, Love Actually..), making cookies (there's a chocolate crinkle cookie that is my Dad's favorite, Ill have to post the recipe when I make 'em), Solid Rock christmas eve service, and much more! 21 days to do all the things that make my heart smile in December.
