Christmas lights really are magical. Today I helped my mom put up Christmas decorations, and it just makes me smile. There is something about those lights that just makes me happy. Throw in a little green and red glitter, and some fancy schmancy ornaments and I'm a goner. I love Christmas!!
It is always fun to help my mom with holiday things because she is so dang good at it. She has so much attention to detail, and she is so creative. I followed her around all day today. I'm pretty sure I have been following her around since I was tiny, and what a great example to follow. She is absolutely amazing. One of the most positive, upbeat, genuinely loving people I know.
(One day the phone photos will stop...that day is not today)Today I am grateful for examples. It's been fun to be here with the Barney family, and get to hang out with Nichole, as well. Watching her with her kids, friends, and even strangers I am always amazed because she is just such a positive, fun, optimistic person. Everyone loves to be around her. I have always looked up to her, as well as my big sister Lindsey, who was kind enough to let me mimic her my entire life...She is another great example of someone who I want to grow up to be like! I am so blessed with awesome friends and family members who I look up to so much. I am not ready to go home. I just keep getting texts about how cold it is, and dad and I are supposedly driving through a storm tomorrow. Wish us luck. I'll miss you AZ sunshine. xoxoxo
