Hmm... this week was a bit harder to be purposeful. It was the LAST week of school before break (!!), so there were lots of goodies and cheer and celebrations to be had! I also was really bad with listening to Christmas music. Ugh.
But, it's ok. I can't get down on myself about it. I reflected a little more yesterday about Advent and singleness, if you haven't seen it already. So, I was able to reflect, still. :) I have been thinking a lot of Mary these days. Can you imagine being so far along in your pregnancy, probably ready to just have the babe out already, overcome with anticipation, yet a little nervous, knowing you are going to birth Our Lord?!
I mean... I can't. She knew exactly what she was doing. She knew that she was carrying the Son of God. And she just did it. And did it awesomely and perfectly. Loved and adored her Son.
And that's what we are called to do, too. No matter what! Thanks, Mary, for helping me during this Advent! :)
On to the pictures!

|Remember that time I said I wasn't going to complain|
of the cold... um, well, that was before I saw that I might actually freeze.
Like, legitimately freeze. BUT, I should have a white Christmas!
|We went the beach for the evening, and this is the beach hat I decided to wear!|
I had to remind the people of FL that it is still December and still almost Christmas!
