Okay, so Christmas was a full month away – but it seems like I just can’t let go of this Christmas vibe. I think this was the first year that I really attempted to make it as magical as it was when I was a child. Even did a lot more decorating… (it’s all down now).
For real guys! Last year it took me almost until April to get all my Christmas decorations down. Seriously this is a major adulating win for me.
Where was I?
Travis’ brother (M) bought me –
A new book on my bookshelf as well as a super comfy (really warm and red) hat for my always cold head. I’m very excited to be starting this book “John dies at the end,” and he even told me that there is a second book that he tried to get but it was sold out of the bookstore.
I had requested that he get me one of his favourite books. When I ask that of people I notice that I get books that I personally wouldn’t pick up myself. I’m always an avid horror, sci-fi, or young adult reader.
It’s how I started a new series a few years back when my sister’s husband gave me “Dies the fire.” I find it’s my own way to expand my collection of books and open up my mind more. I really like attempting to figure out why a book means so much to the person.
Travis’ mom (J) bought me –
A lovely set of brand new art supplies to paint and draw with. This was something that was unexpected because I never mentioned once that I wanted to get back into art. I just ended up unwrapping a lovely set of pencils, brushes, watercolours, and a painting pallet. It was super cool. I even have taken some time to doodle a little in it.
Travis bought me –
A brand new graphing tablet to start my journey of creating art in the digital world. I am amazed that he spent money on this – simply because we both agreed to a limit (which clearly neither of us followed). He even went out and got the bigger graphic tablet so that I have more space to work with. Currently, it is still in the original box simply because I don’t want to ruin it with dust.
I have, to be honest
I’m so thankful that I was spoiled by my family. I know so many others who don’t have the luxury of getting nice or expensive items and I know that I will enjoy these for many years to come.
