Thankfully the confirmation students at our church were selling Advent wreaths today, because I've been meaning to buy one ever since Logan and I got married. And here we are, 3 1/2 years later...and we finally have an Advent wreath. Terrible, I know.
So our little family lit the first candle while doing a little devotion (a devotion book came with the wreath), and I'm hoping to do that every day this Advent. But we'll definitely do it every Sunday! Having a baby really motivates you to want to start traditions and stick with them.
I am oh so very glad this liturgical season is here! Sometimes it's entirely too easy to get wrapped up in daily life and forget about being prepared for the day Jesus comes again. I definitely need to work on that...
