the holiday colors makes me feel nostalgic, miss my brother, bake--and eat-- lots of cookies, turn off all the lights & leave just the Christmas lights on in the evening, buy Christmas-smelling candles, listen to Christmas pandora stations (too much), watch Christmas movies (currently Claymation Christmas, elf and the family stone.) and long for snow. Will it ever snow here? I'm thankful for warm weather to take long walks in and enjoy Christmas festivities downtown, but I must be honest and say that I am longing to see the street lights reflect off of the white snow and to see Jack's face when he lands head first into a pile of it. And these snow boots? I just can't wait.
