I love Christmas! And what better time to do a little Christmas celebrating than in the middle of summer???? So Merry Christmas in July 2017!
I love all things Christmas! About now is when I start thinking about Christmas and gifts I want to buy. It’s not too early to start shopping, is it?
I also love to read those posts that people write about their favorite things or things they are loving lately. I don’t do them much but I did decide to take some time to share some of my favorite things with you for Christmas in July 2017. Maybe this will become an annual tradition. Who knows?? I did do a post similar to this last year but then moved most of the content to my Favorite Things page.
Christmas, Favorite Things, summer
Mother’s Day had me thinking about the things I have learned from my mom over the years.
To give you a brief history lesson: My birthday is 4 days after my mom’s. She had just turned 21 when she had me. She and my dad had only been married about 6 months. I was their first child. Two years later my brother came along and that would be our family until our parents divorced about 20 years later.

Being a Mom has taught me so many things. I’ve narrowed it down to 14 for today.
Ethan turned 14 on Easter Sunday. That means I have been a Mom for 14 years. Actually that means I have been a biological mom for 14 years.
When Kent and I married back in 2000, I became a stepmom to 10 year old Ben. I still remember him asking me to bake cookies for his 4th grade class for his birthday that first year. Oh how it warmed my heart. I became a mom for the first time in that moment.
