I can’t say that I’ve been longing for you, but now when you’re here I definitely see the greatness of you.
I’ve been away from my family and friends back home since May. I miss them like crazy, but for a few reasons I can’t leave the country (USA, that is) right now so it’s going to be another couple of months, at least, until I get to go home and visit my loved ones. December means almost a new year and a little bit closer to see my darlings!
December means Christmas. I’d love to be with my husband and my family for Christmas (preferably in a snowy Norway) but to be honest, the tropical Christmas is all my hubby and I have ever done and this year we get to do it in OUR HOME, not traveling around in Asia or wherever (don’t get me wrong, I LOVE traveling but lately I’ve just been wanting a home with my baby and since July we actually have one. Renting, but still a home). We’re excited about having a Christmas tree, make our own ornaments and make our own food. A mix between Swedish/Norwegian and American food. It’ll be great!
December also means I’m registering for a Half Marathon (haven’t really decided which one, or even where I’m going to run yet) and start with a training plan. Thinking about this gives me butterflies in my stomach, in a good way, and I can’t wait to work hard to achieve this goal (and dream) of mine.
I havent been crazy about Christmas all my life but my excitement is coming back, slowly and more and more for each year. From now on I have my wonderful husband to create own traditions with and celebrate with too, and he’s freaking good at it. I am lucky!
