I have a secret....

Do you have a secret place you go to that you don't want anyone else to know about because you want it all for yourself? Well, I found mine. And because I love you, I will share what it is.

One evening while eating dinner I noticed how much fun the cats were having lying under the Christmas tree. Like this:

Ok, they're clearly not having fun, just sleeping. But they also like to play with the lights and look up at the tree.

So I wanted to try it. So Josh and I finished our dinner and scooched under the tree, heads all the way under on the tree skirt, and let me tell you.... it is magical. It's like you're in an enchanted forest, or Narnia. It's like the whole world goes away, and it's just you, the person next to you, and green and lights and Christmas galore. It's really breathtaking.

So the next night, Lydia was over and Josh and I told her about it. So all three of us got under the tree (yeah it was a bit tight), and she LOVED it. And that's when I knew I needed to tell you about it. Do it. You won't regret it. Oh and you have to turn the rest of the lights out to get the full effect.

Ok, now you think I'm really weird and you might stop following my blog? Well fine then.

That is so cool! I love that idea. :) We always go away to our families at Christmas and don't have much space here so our tree is a tiny wooden ornament that goes on the window ledge. Getting under it would be a little hard but I'm totally trying that when we have a big one!
