There is no place like home.Home is where the heart is. Only cliches are coming to mind at the moment to describe what is inside.

Truth be told, I was excited for Advent the day before it started and then once it was here, I was a little in denial. I didn't want it to be here because I so very much wanted it to be here. If I acknowledged the start, I would soon have to acknowledge it would be over.

Something in my heart couldn't handle that reality, so it denied most of it, and now of course because time continues on, Advent has passed, Christmas has been marked and the New Year (and the true Advent) is in full swing.

I was able to experience some quiet moments inside for which I was and am grateful.  The gent and I celebrated a few days early before heading eastward.
