If you've ever been around me for more than a minute, then you know I love talking about dating and have all kinds of thoughts about it. But when it comes to writing about it, I tend to get hung up on wanting to say things perfectly and consider every angle so I don't hurt anyone's feelings or sound ridiculous. And then I just end up with a lot of drafts that never get published. It's a bummer.
The holidays are almost here! I love me some Thanksgiving- the food, family, thankfulness. The food. =) And don't even get me started on how much I love Christmas. Music, Advent, Jesus, presents! So many things to love. Oh, I almost forgot Christmas trees! Decorations! Twinkle lights! Love, love, love. Back when I was single, I enjoyed all those things, but there was also an extra amount of loneliness and sadness for me during the holiday season. Married life brings its own set of complexities to work through during the holidays (more on that another time), but generally speaking I am more content now in November and December than I was before I got married. My singleness felt heavier and harder when Thanksgiving and Christmas rolled around each year.
