I had this brilliant idea to help savor Advent and prepare for the birth of our Lord. I decided that I would put a different Christmas decoration out everyday. I don't have any specific order or anything. But, I decided that it was a way to help me prepare this season. And, boy... is it helping. As soon as I got down my decorations at the beginning of the week, I was so excited and wanted to put ALL THE THINGS up right then and there.
But I did not.
It has forced me to slow down. It has forced me to think about this season. It has gotten be so excited and giddy with anticipation. And that's what Advent is supposed to be. A time to prepare our hearts, minds and even our homes to celebrate the joy of Jesus Christ! Eee! So exciting!

The tagline I coined... "Hobby Lobby: more than just a craft store!" Because it is. So.much.more.
Alrighty, off to get ready for the day! It should be a really fun day!
