Can you believe it is December already? Eighteen days till Christmas exactly. Time flies by, doesn't it? I put up my Christmas tree a week ago but the whole holiday mood is just not there yet.. And how could it be here if Autumn passed by in a blink of an eye. Seriously, where did it go?
I have been searching for some new interesting ideas to decorate my home and somehow recalled having these little chocolate Advent calendars as a child. They wouldn't last more than three days but so what. Cheeks full of chocolate I felt that Christmas was coming.
This year I decided that I wanted to make the waiting for Christmas a bit more special. I can't fight my curious inner child that loves little gifts and surprises. The Advent calendar? Yes, I know it is past December 1st, therefore a bit too late for it, but why not? I believe that not only children can enjoy waking up in the morning to a new secret gift, note, sweet or whatever you can think of. Have a huge mug of sweet cocoa and take your time to explore the ideas. :)
ps. Tomorrow I'm leaving for London. Hoping to take some nice pictures and maybe come back completely ready to celebrate Christmas! I hope you enjoy your weekend too!
