Advent

I love advent! And it's here! Somehow it sort of snuck up on me and I'm not ready, but I guess that's what it's all about... getting ready, anticipating, waiting, mounting excitement, preparing our hearts for His coming.

We spontaneously headed to the woods last Sunday for our tree. The "plan" was for this weekend, but it couldn't have been a better day! Perfect snow, perfect company, and a perfect tree found in perfect time.. just before it got too dark to head back home. We brought it inside and the house is filled with a deep forest scent. Almost more than we can stand, but maybe it's because it's still damp.

I've barely finished painting the entire (minus the bedrooms) upstairs. Just in time to bring out the Christmas decor!
