Its that time of year again!......

So I know it has been a little while ...but do you remember this post from last year? I'm guessing there is a good chance you may not have been following my blog at the time. But I figured it would be a good time to remind everyone – even if you did watch the little video at the time.

This literally changed my life last year. Not just the couple minute video, but the message that went behind it – and really just that week at church for me.

Like I said last year – this is my blog and I write what I want ;)…so on that note : It’s no secret that Sean and I LOVE the lord and truly try to live our life as great examples and to be the best Christians (and people in general) as possible. But I think the holidays are especially a great time to really be thankful for what this epic holiday really is about.

It could be partially my crazy pregnant hormones – but last week at church we got into some Christmas jams and I started breaking down just a little thinking about how amazing that day really was (and still is), and how it changed the world.

To me , that doesn’t mean getting stuff - I really don't need a thing other than my family and friends, and our health.
 So if you normally get a gift from me, you know it will probably be some very heartfelt homemade tasty goodness again this year ;)

So here it is again for good measure . I think its a great way to just start to get people to think outside of the Christmas box that most people think you have to fit into. Feel free to share and maybe get others to start thinking a little differantly too.


  1. Awww such a good reminder Blair!!! So important to remember what's important this time of you!!! It's people and time and giving!!! Thanks for posting this!

  2. Blair this video speaks so much truth and us very convicting. I wish Christmas wasn't about the gifts and all the hussle and bussle. I trully enjoy relaxing with friends and family, joking and laughing and drinking a cocktail then worrying about what I need to get for this person. With kids it's hard to just get away with presents all together but our kids do know Christmas isn't about the gifts, it's about what Christ did and what a blessing it was an is. One of the many reasons jen and I love about you two is your openness with your faith and being a believer. It's hard to stay on the path but if we never struggled with it then what would we believe in?? if we don't have faith in HIM then what Dover have faith in? Thank you for sharing this Blair. I'm retweetingthis right now. More people need to see it. :)
