Dear Winter,

Where've you been? We missed you this year at the Christmas Party. It's not like you to be a no-show at the Holidays. I can't remember a time when we celebrated without you. Are things okay?
Remember how we always used to watch "A White Christmas" together, and drink hot tea, and wear scarves? Without you, I don't feel much like doing these things any more. It just doesn't feel right.
I thought I might see you around today, seeing as January is one of your favorite months to be outside. And today especially looked like your kind of day. I thought I almost got a glimpse of you, but it was just the rain- I couldn't see you.
Where ever you are, you should know that even though you missed the Holidays, it's not too late to show up. I don't hold grudges. I just miss you.
Please, Winter, come visit this year. It won't be the same without you.
Love, Morgan

I’ve never been one to save anything. Those kids who save their Halloween candy so that it lasts until Christmas… I wasn’t one of them. I never could save so much as a candy cane until the end of the Christmas Eve service. I’m the kind of person who bites ice cream and looks at the dessert menu first. I’ve accepted this.
When it comes to tea, I need a big mug. Not a deceivingly tall mug that actually holds the same amount as the one that your fifth grade teacher kept on her desk for pencils. A real mug. Some might call this a soup bowl. The size of the mug is imperative because of the hastiness in which I like to drink it. I’ve accepted this as well.

Nerdy Christmas Gifties

I find that when I write my list for Christmas, it is usually just books and other book-like items. Here are some of my favorite things from this year's tree...
12 journals. (one for each month!)
A book on troublesome words (because the dictionary is sooo last year.)
No One Cares What You Had For Lunch (a book by the witty and fabulous Margaret Mason.)
A bathrobe (for staying in all day while writing in my journal and reading my book. yay)
Not pictured, but still a favorite, are The Office DVDs...

"Happy Birthday Jesus, sorry your party's so lame."
