What makes you happy this December?



  1. I love this SO much! I might just steal your idea. ;) Also...Sassy journal entries are SO hilarious to look back on.

    1. Girl you are welcome to it!!! :) The more the merrier - and I originally "borrowed" it from someone else, so there you go. Haha. :P

  2. ChristmasChristmasChristmas.

    Also, it's so sad that you weren't watching Anne of Green Gables with me. I really thought you were at first. :(

    Watership Down has been sitting on my bookshelf, unread, for a year and a half. Obviously that needs to change.

    1. READ WATERSHIP DOWN NOW. Immediately. Post-haste. Please. I'm re-reading it and am in love. <3

      And I know. Anne of Green Gables needs to happen. When I come to Ireland. #kiddingnotkidding

  3. All of these things sound wonderful. Wrapping presents makes me happy, and getting books from the library and decorating the Christmas tree and taking bokeh Christmas tree light pictures. And counseling. Counseling is good. :) And nonfiction books! I'm finding out they can be fun to read outside of school! And giving Christmas presents. I like giving just the right gift to just the right person.

    1. Those sounds pretty perfect to me, too. <3 Especially gift-giving...I am so excited to give mine this year! I think I got some good ones. :D

  4. oh, i love these so much! i definitely agree with knitted scarves and setting up the tree! LOVE THEM. i like taking walks at night to see the lights and decorations. there's a street in my city that's famous for their amazing decorations, so i like to go look at them every year!
    lovely blog and lovely post :) xx

    1. Thanks Julia!! Walking at night during this season is one of my favourite things to do, too...and we have that one street that goes ALL OUT, we like to drive by after the Christmas eve service at church. :)

  5. random realizations: I have the exact same journal for my composition class, except in red/pink (the color is debatable, I think it's pink, but everyone else seems to think it's red). And Watership Down is one of my most favorite books, and this post reminded me that I should re-read it.

    That is all :)


Comments from you make my day! ♥ True story.
