Christmas Countdown

I am very excited about Christmas this year. I am hosting my very first little family Christmas here in Perth. The Boys' brother and his BFF are currently visiting from the UK, so they will be enjoying their first ever southern hemisphere xmas here with us and on top of that we have the Boys' wee lads staying with us for the entire weekend, which of course makes it oh so special.

So whilst this Christmas is going to be very 'visitors and little people focused', I wanted to do something that was just for me and the Boy. I decided to create an advent calendar made up of little notes for each other, to share things that we love about one another, things that make us smile, laugh or maybe just memorable times we've shared. So we both scribbled our 24 notes down on red (for him) and blue (for me) card, and sealed them in 24 individual envelopes ready to be opened each day leading up to Christmas.

How nice it will be to end up on Christmas day with an envelope full of 24 messages of loveliness from my Boy. A little package of smiles that will surely beat any gift under the tree.

Happy first of December! xo
