He Wasn’t a Last Minute Gift

December is a crazy month. I feel so much pressure to get stuff done. Now "stuff" includes finishing my ever-growing must finish Christmas movie list, drinking a cup of hot chocolate while sitting on my porch in 75 degree weather, and finding the perfect gifts for e.v.e.r.y.o.n.e.
