All I Really Want...

As I prepare for the Holiday Season...

Making sure I have everything I need, everything bought, everything wrapped and everything organized...

I can't help but step back and think about what I really want. 

Which does include a Teddy Hug of course ;)

But before I get into that...

The holiday season is about giving...

And I love giving.

I love coming across special 'something's' for special 'someone's' knowing that that something is perfect for them! (Or at least I believe it is lol)

My wrapping skills still haven't improved.

And in the spirit of giving...

I simply enjoy the act of doing so! (Although sometimes I feel like I don't give enough which, is meant in more ways than one!)

To be honest...

I never feel like I have to give because...

I want to give! (And although I can't give the moon, despite my wanting to, I can always give my own version of it!)

And, if we are talking about giving for the holidays...

I just want to give gifts, not from a list, but...

Gifts from the heart. (Whether they be tangible or not)

Now, in speaking about what I want...

I can sit here and give you my holiday wishlist...

But at the end of the day...

These are just things.

Yes, of course...

These are things I know I'd love and things I know I'd put the use (great use!) but...

These aren't the life essentials that will bring me lasting happiness!

A good piece of cake can only last so long ;)

Now don't get me wrong...

I love presents!

We all love our box of chocolates :)

But...

At the end of the day...

All I really want (this holiday season and every season) is...

To be surrounded by my Family...


All I really want is...

To be surrounded my Friends...


All I really want is...

For Teddy NOT to knock down Noel Sapinnn! (lol)


And...

All I really want is...

To be surrounded by Love!

FUll house :)

What about you...

What do you really want?

Stay Tuned FU More On *CaNdY FiT*

  20. Likewise, all I want for Christmas is to spend quality time with my family. Since half of my family lives hours away, the last time I saw them was at my Grandfather's funeral in January.
    Whenever we get together it's always so loud and full of laughter. It'll be our first Christmas without our Grandfather but he'll still be in our thoughts.

    Thanks so much for all the inspiration and recipe ideas this year. I hope you, your family and friends have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
