I love this time of year.... waking up to the beautiful snow covered trees in the morning, the twinkle lights on your way home from work, and the anticipation and excitement on every child's face when you mention Santa. But the thing I love most about Christmas (besides the holiday cookies of course :) is shopping for that perfect gift. Call me crazy.. but as I get older and my families have chosen to cut back on the gifts we exchange my excitement for Christmas seems to lessen a bit each year.

Yes, I realize this makes me sound like a spoiled child who needs her Christmas presents.... and don't get me wrong... what girl doesn't love getting a present? But in reality it's the giving that I really miss out on. I love making mental notes when a conversation with a friend or loved one draws to a great gift idea. I love pouring through the pages of Uncommon Goods and Red Envelope searching for the perfect, unexpected present. And on Christmas when that gift is opened.. I get all kinds of warm fuzzy feelings as I watch the recipient's face break into an award winning smile. That to me... is Christmas.

So why am I blogging about this?!?! Well I'm glad you asked. As my gift list for family and friends seems to shorten each year I've decided I want those warm and fuzzy feelings back... and you my lovely blog readers are going to reap the benefits of my 'need to give'. Starting this Friday December 12th I am going to be sponsoring my own Twelve Days of Christmas. For the 12 days leading up to Christmas Eve I will pick a random person from my blog subscriber list to win the daily prize. As we get closer to the holidays the prize values will increase. What do you need to do to enter??? Well, nothing if your already a blog subscriber.. your already entered.... but you have to be a blog subscriber to win. Sooo if you know a friend or family member who is also a client or wants to be a client of Angelic Angles Photographer... share the holiday spirit and pass this information along. All they need to do is fill in the box to the right of the blog that signs them up as a blog subscriber. Good luck... and thanks again for stopping by to read the blog!

* Until the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway is complete this post will remain at the top of the blog. Scroll down to see new wedding posts as they arrive.
