Christmas Morning Thoughts

It's Christmas Morning.

You can smell the cinnamon buns baking in the oven and hear the footsteps of your little cousins padding down the stairs. Led by a little hand to the tree, you can see the presents and you patiently wait for the rest of your family to join so you can see what Santa has left for you. There is a warmth which settles over the room every Christmas morning.

But this Christmas take a moment to give thanks for the season, and the most valuable presents it truly holds.

If your family is healthy, thank God for their prosperity. If they are not, thank God for their healing and recovery. Family is inviolable. All the food you will eat, the presents you will receive, thank God for the people who have poured their money and efforts into your holiday cheer. The hymns you hear and the food you eat have meaning, so treat them with respect by respecting and thanking each other. Enjoy the season, but remember the reason. When the season ends, try to carry the love and giving of the season over into your daily life. The reason why Christmas is so special is from the love we give to each other, and that is the greatest gift of them all. No matter how you show it, be kind to one another and remember to love on each other.

Also, remember to simply thank your parents this Christmas, this goes such a long way.

Merry Christmas.

I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
