For some reason, I don't feel as satisfied by this Christmas as I have in years past and I can't pinpoint why I feel this way. I think part of it was that I didn't have enough time to properly nest and prepare the house to feel Christmasy. I really wanted to make more decorations, cookies, gifts....just make in general. All and all, I can't complain. Our lives are very full of friends, family, beautiful things and good health. Let's hope that 2009 brings us more of the same (and lots of making!).
