I cannot wait for Christmas this year! My mama, brother and I are heading to Washington to see our family and spend a good week there. I suppose it's all the family I get to see. No other family members live in Arizona so going back home to the West Coast is my favorite way to spend time together. It snows there, too. That's definitely a plus!
When I headed out to Tempe for the radio station the clouds were gray and gloomy- it made me so happy. We listened to Christmas music on the way there and I was so elated I was smiling nonstop. I get to wear my sweaters, layers, and my boots. Knowing that very soon I get to visit my family makes me all the more happier. Even when we all aren't doing anything fun, at least we do it altogether. That's where all my positive memories come from- my loved ones.
What are you doing for the holidays? :)

Love your family- they're all you have. No matter what may happen, we should all be here for one another.
