An Advent calendar

This blog is growing so ridiculously fast, I don't know where all this interest in my life comes from but I guess I'm grateful. I guess it means you understand.

Some of you have been here from the beginning, others just started reading. Those of you that did may not understand everything I write about, so I thought I'd do something for you.

When I was little, my father would tell me stories, one new each night in December as a countdown to Christmas. He would sit on my bed and tell me stories that sounded like fairytales but really were his way of letting me know who he was.

So, for each new day leading up to Christmas I will share a quote, something someone once told me that meant something to me and that says something about who I am. Some of them you've already heard, others not, and maybe they'll only make it all even more confusing but at least then you'll know I tried.

  16. Now THIS I am looking forward to. :)

    I believe blogs that showcase real personality, a girl behind the curtain, are the most successful for that reason. When it comes down to it, people just don't want generic. So thank you for being one of the rays of sunshine in this plastic world.

    I think that Christmas tradition your dad created is beautiful. What a really sweet, genuine way to open yourself to your child. You're lucky to have such a great dad. And I love that you're going to share that tradition with us.

    I hope you have a great weekend! xo
