Today is the day! It is December 1st and it's time to open Door #1 on your advent calendar.
As an "Architect of Delight," I believe in looking for beauty in everyday moments. Anticipation is a big part of enjoying a wonderful life...not only do you enjoy what you are looking forward to when it happens, you also savor the planning and preparation involved in getting there.
Advent calendars are a perfect example of this. They give you a little lift every day, inspiring you to enjoy all the days leading up to the glorious celebration of Christmas.
Do you have an advent calendar? I saw some cute ones at a local bookstore last night. If you are willing to miss the first few days of "window opening," I encourage you to look at the beautiful selection available online at Blumchen.
