Tis the Season & Love Will Find a Way

So Christmas is like right around the corner right?
Mr. Grinch and Frosty and all such are
gettin prepared for this crazy awesomeness
called the holidays.

Another thing this season never lacks in is:
Good grief!!!!
I never really thought of Nov/Dec to be so "true love" oriented.
Not that it's a bad thing or anything!
I'm a firm believer in love and happiness mmmk?

But WOW!

And you know what?
I get jealous sometimes.
Yeah I do.
I know.....shameful....I shall now hang my head....
but srsly.
I do get jealous of how happy people are together sometimes.

And yes.
It's because Andrew isn't here.
I mean.....DUH.
But at least I acknowledge this right???
That's the first step isn't it? ;)

I love the holiday season
and I love love
so therefore this is like the happiest season for me.
(and the most wonderful time of the year)

I love when I can get out the Swarski crystal Forget-Me-Nots
Andrew gave me for Christmas and remember
how proud he was of his gift ;)
(He was so cute hahahahaha)
I love looking at the pictures of the flowers he sent me for Christmas that year too.
I had just started working at the Disney Store so we had less time together
and he worked at Watson's so he sent me flowers ;)
So thoughtful ;)

I love that I have only 6 months left to wait when Christmas Day comes around ;)
I can't wait to be able to talk to him face to face.
(instead of a tape recorder hahahahahahaha)
I can't wait for my best friend to come home
and this season helps me to think about that so much more.

Yes I do get jealous but how many girls can say that they have a guy
willing to give up 2 years to the Lord,
writing to her and sharing his experiences,
and strengthening her from thousands of miles away.
There are so many times when I swear I'll turn around
and there he'll be cuz he's still such a big part of my life.

One of the many reasons I care about him so much is that he can make funny faces:

Thinks he can eat ice cream with chopsticks:

Thinks he can wear MY sunglasses and still look cool:

And still be the absolute BEST looking guy ;)

Like I said in the title:
Love will find a way
and I'm a firm believer in love
and ours was meant to last ;)

Tis the season.
Make sure you let those you love know you love them.


  1. Ali, all I can say is <3 You are amazing!! :) Thanks for being my friend!


  2. This was a cute post. :)

    I love the holiday season because of the awesome feeling it gives me but I get jealous because I have no one to love. (aside from family) and haven't for a long time. It leaves me feeling very lonely and very 'I am going to be a spinster' because I'm ready to settle down. =( There, I admitted my own jealousy... but I don't know what the next step is in this recovery process!

  3. So adorable! You express your feelings like I wish I could! No joke! Girly you have only about 8 months or so til Andrew can come see you at DISNEYLAND! so that will be a dream come true! i know you'll enjoy it.

  4. Thanks for the comment and I'm glad you enjoyed the review! I hope you like the book as much as I did. And yes, I took the photo for my header. I own a two foot tree that I sit in my window and decorate with some of the ornaments that have been passed down in my family. I figured it'd make a nice photo. :) One of the ornaments are in the picture and the paper white star is hand made from Bethlehem PA- based on the Moravian star. I'm quite proud of how it came out! Including my bookshelf and all <3


Welcome to our adventure!
