hometown feeling


As the cookies settle, the trash bags fill with wrapping paper, and the Christmas music fades—another year has come and gone. But this last year was special, it was different. Half of it was spent not being in college anymore, pretending to grow up, and beginning this real world phase that everyone talks about. Well here we are, January is about to begin and a new year is almost on its way. I was extra thankful that my entire family was home this time around. My grandparents house is so special each and every year. I feel so incredibly lucky to have such an amazing family and actually get to spend time with them during the holidays. We all got to put our phones away, turn the TV off, and just talk. Even though we tell the same stories every year and we laugh at the same jokes—it doesn't matter. I love it. That feeling—being back where I started.

Every year Dad gathers sticks and some big ol' logs and we all invite a few friends over to enjoy the fire. I'm so glad I got a chance to take a break and relax with my family. Nothing beats it. According to my age, I keep getting older but every time we sit down on the deck it feels the same. The love. The memories. The hometown feeling.

Hello December

I told myself today that I need to write a post to start December off and I just hit my dashboard to check the calendar and it's already the 8th. I could of sworn it was the first or second. Hmm? Well November sure did fly by, I'm so glad I got a chance to go home and see my family. My life has increasingly gotten busier and busier and the more we do as a company the more that has to be done. I'm meeting people everyday that are impacting my life in different ways. So far things are going great for LifeKraze and I can't wait to see what the future holds.

Christmas is fast approaching and this year we cut down a tree for the office, hung lights, and decorated. I always love Christmas time, it's something about the spirit, the lights, and just that feeling in the air. It's Christmassssss time.

I hope this month goes as well as last and maybe a little better :)
