I'll Be Home for Christmas!

This is my 250th post, which is just one more reason to celebrate in addition to this completed checklist:
  • Life Science Final: Check!
  • Petrine Epistles Final: Check!
  • Literary Criticism Final: Check!
  • Personal Belief Statement: Check!
  • General Psychology Final: Check!
And tomorrow morning I will start my journey home! It's true what they say: "There's no place like home for the holidays." I can't wait to see my family again!

The picture above is of me and my family last year. =)

Mom, Dad, Emily, Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Billy, Muffin Man (Emily's cat), Mr. Murphy (my cat), Shadow (my uncle's dog), and Candy (my sister's bunny) . . . I'm coming home!!! Can't wait to see you all!!!

And to my dear blogging friends, be looking for a book review or two, a "Book Blog Swap" with Joy from Edgy Inspirational Romance, a Christmas interview on Hannah's blog for her "Christmas Blogfest," and other fun posts in the coming days before Christmas!

WOOHOO, YOU GO GIRL!!!! And I'm so glad you're getting to go home for CHRISTmas. It's tough not being there with them while at school, but you said it best "there’s no place like home...".
I know you will have a very blessed CHRISTmas with your family and I can't wait to see what you have planned for the New Year, Amber!!
