christmas in their eyes
I love this. Their innocence at Christmas time. The way their eyes light up with expectation and excitement. It brings back memories from when I was their age, and Christmas was a month-long holiday. Even though that's not the case anymore (thanks to finals...ugh) I still love this part of Christmas. It might be one of my favorite things about December - that I get to celebrate this time with the people I love the most.
On a completely different note, today was spontaneous; it was the soaking up of ordinary, special moments. At 12:12, the alarm on my phone went off, and the majority of us went outside. We were barefoot, and it was forty degrees. Someone said go, and we ran. We ran around the house yelling and laughing. We did it just to celebrate a unique day - 12/12/12. I came inside with numb feet and a panting breath, but I felt alive. This is the kind of life I want to live - the spontaneous, the fun the soaking up of every little moment I have been given in this life.
