the red and the green

wait what?

the red and the green? ...that means christmas...wait christmas? ALREADY??! i mean i know costco started selling the wicker light up raindeers and 425 pack counts of those cheap plastic-y ribbon bows after mother's day...but that's costco...and monday when i went to fred meyer's and saw the decoration isles (which a few days ago were full of harvest pumpkins, acorns and leaves - all good things fall) filled up with red and green m&m's, those mint chirstmas tree taffys, tinsel, lights and evergreen scented candles i couldn't believe that it was that time of year again...

don't get me wrong...i love it with every ounce of my heart...this time of year is my very most favorite. i love lights, and treats, and family time, and snow, and the non-stop christmas music that plays around the clock...but at the same time woah! i can't believe how fast another year went by...and to be honest it kind of freaks me out. but whatever it's fine...i'll embrace it...because embracing it means drinking lots and lots of these...

white chocolate peppermint mocas...pretty sure if clouds in heaven this time of year have a taste...they would taste something like this.

also this year i am going to try something...and no guarantees but if i write it down...and share it with the public, i figure my odds of getting it together and actually doing it (rather than just saying it) will be here it is:

i will be adopting a family for christmas...with the help of my family and friends and anyone else who feels generous this far i am just in the planning stages but i have made some phone calls and been directed to the right people to working on making it happen, i will keep you posted.
