Seasonal Magic

Last week I had the chance to be a guest on Melanie Noell Bernard’s blog! As she too had a Christmas series going on.

So maybe today, on the 4th day of Christmas you might want to have a look at the magic of the Christmas season 🙂

The Dark Side of Christmas by Melanie Noell Bernard

With the world outside the window a backdrop of darkness, the Christmas tree shone like a beacon of hope. A warm glow emanated from the twinkling lights. They illuminated the living room in a soft orange hue. The small living room danced to life with the glitter of the presents under the tree, the sheen of the white marble over the crackling fireplace, and the sparkle of bobbles and ornaments hung from the pine.

I curled up on the sofa. With my legs tucked up against my chest, a mug of steaming cocoa warming my fingers, I gazed at the scene laid out before me.

It was perfect. Continue reading “The Dark Side of Christmas by Melanie Noell Bernard | Day 5 | Advent Calendar 2016”

Youthful 2016

Blogging2016 is already 19 days old, quite young if it is compared to my own age of 10 014 days. Still out of those 19 days I managed to miss 4 days in posting on my blog, but on one of those missed days I had a guest appearance elsewhere! Yesterday, I was a guest on Melanie Noell Bernard’s blog to share my New Year’s resolutions. If you go over there you’ll find a few of my resolutions for this still very young year. I tried to provide a not too boring selection of goals for this year, hopefully you will be smiling about them.

Here you can find my guest post. After that please have a look around the other contributions to her series, and make sure you have a look around Melanie’s blog too. I had her as a guest for the advent calendar, maybe you missed her post?

Traditions are those activities which take place every year. They’re the things we look forward to, and one of the best times for them to occur is during the holidays. The holidays come around every year. Same day, same time, same tradition.

My family wasn’t one to have a whole lot of traditions when it came to holidays, specifically Christmas. Christmas was simply a time filled with buying presents, wrapping them when no one else was home, cooking a big turkey, and relaxing in the glow of the Christmas tree on Christmas morning. In fact, it was the Christmas tree, itself, that held the most tradition in my house. Continue reading “Advent Calendar Day 3: Oh, Christmas Tree by Melanie Noell Bernard”
