Christmas is a time of year I think nearly everyone enjoys, but as you become an adult it tends to lose a bit of the magic it had when you were a kid. I wanted to give some of that magic back to my husband so I created an advent calendar tailored specifically for him. If you would like to make one I posted a tutorial on how I made mine here. If you are curious about the origins of the advent calendar there is a nice little history here.
December 8: Advent Day Eight
Today I gave Hubby a stainless steal Stanley flask. He isn't one who would normally use a flask, but about a month ago he saw this one in Target and thought it was really cool. I don't know how much use it will really get, but it shows I was listening! And he still thinks it is cool. Maybe I'll take him some place he can use it soon!
