I got our Advent Calendar from Target and like how simple it is. I may play with it a bit this year though and change things up. I've seen quite a few different versions of Advent Calendars out there from an origami crane one that was featured in the Good Housekeeping Christmas edition to the more traditional houses and doors. This is another of my favorites from Martha Stewart.
After Christmas I put them all together into a book to keep. This is last years book
This is one I made using a left over invitation from our engagement party.
It is always a challenge to come up with something to say every other day but it is a great exercise in sitting back and reflecting on the things I love about Daniel and how important he is to my life. We love looking back on our notes and seeing how we have changed and grown in our love and our lives with each other. It makes the season even better (and I thought it was pretty great to begin with).
What about you? Anyone else have a good holiday tradition? Our other big tradition is making gingerbread houses from scratch. We are already sketching out our floor plans for the big event.
