Merry Christmas!



I decided to not do a Waiting on Wednesday this week and write a Christmas message instead. 

I know Thanksgiving is supposed to be the time of the year where we say what we are thankful for, but for me, Christmas feels more appropriate.

I've had a wonderful year and it is only getting better. I got my blog up and running, graduated college, and got a new job. All 3 of those have brightened up my year so much that I can end the year in happiness. Last year, 2012, it wasn't the best year, so it is nice to be able to make up for that.

I am also thankful for my family, my puppy, and my boyfriend, which I wouldn't be able to survive without any of them. This is the first year in a long time that I actually had the money to be able to buy presents for the people in my life, so I am happy to be able to get my family things to show I appreciate them. I know you don't always have to get things, but I wanted to and I feel so good about it. I can't wait for them to open their presents and just have a wonderful day with those that matter most in my life.

With that said, that means I want to spend the day with all of you, too! Sadly, I am not able to go see all of you, so I wanted to come here and say Merry Christmas and thank you for being here for me. Without you all, there wouldn't be a Paradise of Pages. I am so thankful for each and every one of you and I can't wait to go into the new year with you!

I hope all of you got all the presents you wanted and I can't wait to read all the hauls that are going to be posted up here soon!

I am now off to spend the day with my family, which is the sole reason as to why I love Christmas so much. It is one of the only days throughout the whole year where I get to see my entire family together. I love them all so much but sadly life gets in the way a lot when it comes to spending time together.

I hope you all get to spend the time with your families! If you aren't able to, I hope you still get to talk to them and let them know you still love them, no matter how far away you are!

Merry Christmas to all of you :)
