I have always loved that time of the day around 6pm, when the city is returning home.... you see cars full of families, tired moms with tired kids in the back, dads listening to the news, young people not even aware of what time it is, grandmas trying to get home before dark, buses full of people, motorcycles rushing through traffic... I don't know why but it has kind of a romantic feel to it!
Knowing my love for this time of the year, Gabriel has given me for the last couple of years the best present.... my very own Christmas tree for our room! Some people don´t get it, but I enjoy so much going to sleep looking at the twinkly lights, and smelling its scent all night that it really makes all the sense to me... plus it lasts a complete month, so I guess that is better than flowers that last a week! Another cool thing is that the only decoration it has is made by Ale and Emi.... so that makes it more special! That and Christmas Pjs is like icing on the cake for me!
For the First Advent Sunday we went for lunch to my mom´s... as always she greeted us with like royalty and had a delicious lunch! We lit her Advent Wreath while there, and then we came home to lit ours. we tried to sing some Christmas songs but we ended up singing happy birthday for Ari as she really did not understand why on earth we would sing other song than happy birthday in front of a lit candle! But hey, this is what is all about right... being together and feeling loved.
today I´ll give you a piece of our December blue sky! isn´t it amazing??
