Gosh, this time next week it'll be Boxing Day! When we get this close to Christmas I always get a strange mix of emotions. Excitement that we'll be seeing our families in a few days. I've only seen my parents twice since last Christmas. Excitement for my daughter. She loves Christmas so much. And just general excitement for all that goes with Christmas Day.
I have a pang of anxiety too. Christmas for us ever since we lived in Auckland, has meant us travelling to family nearly every year. With small children, that's quite a feat. With big kids, well, not so stressful packing wise, nor hiding Santa pressies but still a lot to think about. Checking and double checking we have all the gifts is probably my number one on the check list! Packing the camera, charger and phone charger number 2. Priorities!
I also want to have my December photo book up to date so I can just add in the Christmas Days when we get home and call it complete. By this time of the month, my mind is wandering to the new year, new beginnings, new things to record. I absolutely LOVE starting off new projects.
Added to that, it's holiday time for us. We're having a week at the beach later in January but in the weeks after Christmas, hopefully we have a few day trips and adventures. I think it's my favourite time of the year! We just need summer to install itself (there's been a joke on the internet that summer failed to install due to an error). Whatever the weather, it's important to find the magic in every day. That's my plan anyway.
Wishing everyone the most wonderful HOLIDAY SEASON.
A couple of digital pages for my photo book...

You can see all my December Daily posts here. So looking forward to having this book printed in January!
