The Anticipation Calendar

I love the concept of Advent calendars even though I never had one as a child. There’s something about opening a window every morning to find a surprise that strikes me as a wonderful way to start the day.  What you discover these days might be secular or sacred, but common to all the calendars is the sweet anticipation and building of suspense. During December, I’ve challenged myself to create my own Advent calendar by posting something new every day December 1st through the 24th. It might be a quote, a poem I love, an object of beauty or a book — anything that inspires me, or surprises me or keeps my eyes open to the world. I hope you’ll enjoy these opening these little windows as much as I know I’ll love creating them.

    Nikki, You are like a beloved guest, not church perfect but wonderful each time you appear. You are perfect in that you never stay too long, and never stick to a schedule. Enjoy every moment there is. Peace.

    Yay! A grown-up advent calendar. Thanks for doing this, Nikki. I love that there will be something from Fridaville everyday til Christmas.
