Have yourself a merry little Christmas.
Make the Yule-tide gay.
From now on our troubles
Will be miles away.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Will be near to us once more.

Someday soon we all will be together
If the Fates allow.
Until then we’ll have to muddle through somehow.
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

I finally understand the cosy, magic and stress of going home for the holidays as I retreated back to Santa Barbara to spend Christmas with friends, family and those I love. I also understand that 2013 can’t come quick enough! Hoping that wherever you are, however you celebrate, that you have a little magic today, too. Looking forward to sharing more in the new year, and being part of things that time somehow wasn’t available for in 2012.
