Happy first day of Advent! We're getting into the Christmas spirit more here. I did some decorating around the house, and on Saturday we went to see the Granville Christmas lights with Matt and Hannah for the second year in a row.
This Advent season I wanted to do something more to prepare my heart, and my friend Lydia suggested the book The Vigil: Keeping Watch in the Season of Advent by Wendy Wright. I'm not far into it, but I'm really enjoying it so far and would definitely recommend it.
I'm looking forward to being in San Diego again soon, but for now I'm enjoying the cold and am striving to be content watching the lights keep me warm while I finish grading.
