Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells

Everyday is Christmas Day at Bronner's of Frankenmuth. And while my family has never been religious or big on the holiday, being surrounded by copious amounts of Christmas spirit does have a magical effect on you. Going into stores like these do not just get me excited for a specific holiday, but also make me dream of the day where I have my own home. Not a temporary apartment for the year, or a room in a house with other students, but something more like a semi-permanent place of my own with my significant other and maybe a puppy (or two). For someone who constantly feels like she's moving out of one place and into another, the idea of "settling down" just seems so abstract that it almost provides a sort of solace.
