Here on Nitty Gritty Romance, we have been hosting some of your favorite authors talking about happiness around the holidays and what it means to them…
So, in keeping with our holiday theme, I’m going to share what makes me happiest around the holidays and always–my family.
Our traditions are simple. My girls love to go for a walk on Christmas Eve, visit horses and bring them Christmas treats, and “prepare” their dolls for Santa’s arrival. We follow Santa closely on Norad, and by early evening on Christmas Eve, my girls are squealing with joy. It’s really quite perfect. Then, as the evening progresses, we read, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for the billionth time, and the magic of Christmas falls on us — that quiet, beautiful, peaceful feeling — assuring us it is an evening like no other.
Wishing you a holiday filled with joy and peace. May you be surrounded by those you love most, doing the things you love best.
