I stood at the kitchen sink gazing out of the window. “Wow, the fall is going to be gone in no time,” I thought to myself, realizing that plans were in the making for air flights at holiday time. Nothing like flipping those calendar pages to make you realize how quickly time flies.
I smiled warmly and joyfully announced aloud to the window in front of me and to no one in particular, “Rum logs!”
“What?” came a startled response from Camilla who was sitting at the table.
“Oh,” I responded somewhat sheepishly, “I said, ‘Rum logs!’.” With renewed relish I continued to explain. “I’m thinking that soon it will be time for Christmas decor and that made me think of rum logs. I love them! That makes me glad it’s coming again soon!”
“Yup!” she agreed heartily.
We all agree: rum logs are a favorite part of Christmas here at our home. They are worth waiting for! Anticipation can be a great thing and traditions help create anticipation.
Here’s something for you to anticipate. We will soon be starting a series on “Traditions” right here at Mom and Us. Be sure to catch it all!
