Project 52 – Advent Calendar

Tom is out of town until tonight.  I miss him – but it’s been a great time to get our home decorated and ready to welcome him cheerfully into the Christmas season.  It is one of our favorite times of the year.

I decided to make a personalized advent calendar for him to open daily beginning tomorrow.  I was supposed to pick him up at 9:30p. which would have given me plenty of time to finish it. However, he just called saying he booked an earlier flight and wants to take me to dinner at 7:30p.  Yea for date night – uh-oh for getting his calendar ready.  I may only be a day ahead of him now, but that’s okay.  I have found that plans are often adjustedm and it’s important not to give up on your idea.  Work around the unexpected – it’s so worth the effort!

If you would like to do a similar calendar for your spouse with the twelve days of Christmas, you’ll find details on the Husband’s Only “Romantic Christmas” page.  If you want to do what I’m doing for your husband – check out the Wives Only “Romantic Christmas” page.  I’ll post them up as I finish them along with pictures.

Hint: Using mini Gift Tags that fold is a good way to make your own daily notes to open.  They can provide hints to a daily treat, or be coupons good for something you know your spouse loves.  It doesn’t have to be expensive, or cost anything at all.  Have fun, and make the most of this Joyous Season.
