If Christmas were a girl, we would be best friends, for always. We would sit under the Christmas tree together, drink hot chocolate with marshmallows, sing carols, and count all the different snowflakes on our Christmas tree. That’s how much I love this time of the year. The frequent family gatherings. The fire slowly dancing in the fireplace. The beautiful ornaments on our tree. The smell of gingerbread cookies. The cold air. The warm scarves. The snowflakes. The Christmas Concerts. Reminiscing on the childhood memories of playing in the snow . . . sleigh rides in the middle of the night . . . huge icicles outside my window. The list can go on and on. Foreeeal! But I will save you from all the details. There’s one thing I didn’t mention. Christmas breaks. Although college years seem like history, Christmas breaks are a must for everyone. I sure am very thankful to have one and encourage you to take one as well, no matter how long. Cheers, Yuliya.
That’s right a self portrait right in my office, underneath my very own snowflakes ;).
