After a yummy dinner out tonight, the guys helped me check idea #32 off my Cherish Christmas list when we enjoyed some beautiful Christmas lights.
Enjoy Christmas Lights with the Family
Although we have several large Christmas displays in our area, we decided to drive through many of the neighborhoods in our town and "ooh and ahh" over the handiwork of our neighbors. We not only delighted in the beautiful outdoor decorations, but we also picked up a few ideas for our own yard next year.
Last Christmas we discovered two homes in a small neighborhood nearby that work together to share an amazing presentation. We have driven past these homes several times and each time we discover something we didn't notice the last time. There is just so much to see! It sets off a glow all the way down the street. And it's just fun to stop and take a nice long look.
Driving around with my family...looking at Christmas lights...with Christmas music playing in the background...is something I cherish every Christmas...and today, I cherished it again.
Thinking About the Next Quest
As we near the end of the month, my first try at a Heart & Spirit Monthly Quest will soon come to a close. In a few days this Cherish Christmas Quest will be over and I believe it has been successful. I have cherished Christmas this year in a way I have never done before. It has blessed me and my family greatly.
In a few days, I begin my 2013 Year Long Adventure. Over the course of the year, I plan to tackle at least 12 Quests in the hopes of creating a pure heart and renewing my spirit. I have to say, it's going to be a challenging, but exciting year ahead.
Today I sat down to look over my Heart & Spirit Monthly Quest list and plan out my next Quest. I recently got a new calendar and I'm ready to start filling it in (with pencil, of course) with my ideas.
I plan to take on two Quests in January. I'm going to Exercise Every Day and Write Something Every Day. I'll share a little more about these Quests soon.
Are you thinking about joining me for the month of January? If so, please let me know by commenting on this post, commenting on My Rosie Outlook Facebook page, or send me an email.
What ideas do you have for a Heart & Spirit Monthly Quest? Please share your thoughts with me and we can encourage each other during the next month! Think about it and let me know!
Blessings to You!
