Christmas is just 9 short days away! Do you feel the excitement, the electric currents of joy flowing through the air? I think I’ll be a bit merrier after Wednesday night. That will officially mark the end of the semester and beginning of winter break! I’m excited to go home and sleep in my own bed! That’s always such a joy, to snuggle up in your own bed after months away, heck, I get that feeling even just a weekend away! Crazy though that I won’t have much time to “readjust” before Christmas. I have a feeling the entire weekend will just be a big blur, but hopefully a blur of love, hugs, and comfort!
As we head into our last week before Christmas and the second to last week of 2016, let’s all go in full-force and make the best of our current situations and go out with a bang! Keep on keeping on and savor these moments! Happy Friday, have a great weekend, and enjoy this week’s Friday Finisher reads!
