“All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
I went for a walk
On a winter’s day
I’d be safe and warm
If I was in L.A.
California dreamin’
On such a winter’s day.”
– Mammas and Pappas, California Dreamin

I can hardly believe December is here, it arrived so quickly! December is one of my favorite months of the year and I love the holidays, they are filled with beautiful memories,  family, good food and lots of love.

I always feel like this is a great time to slow down a bit, reconnect with family and loved ones and enjoy the season.  It is also a good time to recap on the past years knowledge and think about what I have accomplished,  I usually think about what I am grateful for as well.

Looking back at this amazing year I just can’t believe how fast it is all happening.  My little infant is no longer an infant and now I have a beautiful toddler that is more independent with every single day that goes by.  I have met some amazing people, shared some great experiences and of course enjoyed being a parent, being a mommy.

I am very grateful for having the opportunity to stay at home with our son to see every daily change. I can really say that it has been a very busy year,  it has been exciting and fun and challenging at times but never boring.  My life changed in many infinite ways when I gave birth to our little boy and I am forever grateful for that.

Well, it is now time to continue enjoying this beautiful time of the year!  Do you have any holiday traditions that are close to your heart?
