tonight, we are young

It feels absolutely wonderful to be home again, with family, sleeping in my HUGE queen-sized bed. Oh, how I've missed this place. As soon as I walked in the door, I was greeted with a winter wonderland.
A tribute to my childhood, to simple days of love and magic. 
To days of cuddling with my dolls and gazing out the window, trying desperately to see a sleigh pulled by reindeer flying through the sky, but always falling asleep before it appeared.
Days of dancing in front of the screen in the theater after Aladdin, making my dad stay with me until the music finally stopped.
And maybe that's why, after watching a movie with my lil sis tonight, I convinced her to stay for the credits, when everyone else had left, and dance with me in front of the screen.
I refuse to be too old for things.
I refuse to forget how to feel excited.
I refuse to give up the little stuff.
Tonight, and for the rest of my life, I am young.
I will believe in Santa.
I will stay awake staring out that window.
And I will dance.

p.s. i'm posting this on sunday because i wanted to say it. and also because this next week is devoted to my thoughts, feelings, and memories about christmas. be prepared. i am one of the crazy christmas people.
