Hey everyone! Christmas is now a week away and I'm so positively excited for it! Christmas has always been one my most favorite times in the year and not just because I get presents, but because everything is so jolly and there are pretty decorations all around me that makes me feel like I'm a little girl again. So in honor of this week I'll be writing Christmas related posts all week. Starting with a Dear Santa Tag that I got from Char
