Definition: a feeling or mood associated with a particular place, person, or thing.
For those of you that know me, you know that I am easily excited by many things; little things. I am especially excited by the little things that make it a holiday. I love the lights, the smells, and the sounds of the very special holiday that is upon us. One thing that makes it Christmas time for me is the falling of snow. Folks, we've had none! The forecast has told of sunny days ahead (argh!) This does not create the ambiance that I so thoroughly love.
However, today I had just a wee glimpse of my dream season. It may have been all of 10 minutes, but the gracious sky giftedly produced giant white flakes of snow on the beautiful earth today. What could I do but grab Melanee and run to Maverick for some Abuelita hot chocolate whilst it snowed, and listen to holiday music on the way. Friends, it was just magnificent!
The ambience was created, and though it may not still be snowing, at least I know it will... eventually. When it does, I hope you'll enjoy the beauty of those fat flakes (even if you don't love them) and create your own moment of holiday cheer.
