My favorite time of year has arrived! The boxes are starting to come out and get organized. You know, the ones in the attic, the garage, and the closets. Carefully placed breakables are finding their way out of the bubble wrap too. You see, my favorite time of year is from October through December – when holiday decorating is in full bloom!
Thanks to Hallmark Channel for sponsoring this post and giveaway. Some material suitable for only ages 21+ – use alcohol legally and responsibly). Oh yes, there’s an incredible holiday giveaway, so be sure to keep on reading below.
Hallmark Channel Original Premiere of “Checkin’ It Twice”
After a bit of time decking our halls, chances are you’ll find my daughter and I snuggled up on the couch with a blanket or two and our matching Christmas socks. Yes, we have them courtesy of my husband! We are always ready for the latest original Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. It’s one thing I look forward to each holiday season and this weekend we are kicking it off with the premiere of “Checkin’ It Twice.”
Let’s take a sneak peek:
This sneak peek sure does get me excited about the holiday season, and with everything that has been going on in the world, I know I don’t mind Christmas in October AT ALL. Take a look at what the season entails:
If you are like me, you don’t miss a single original premiere on Hallmark Channel . This year there are 31 original movies premiering throughout #CountdowntoChristmas. Twenty-eight – INCREDIBLE!
What a way to kick it off Countdown to Christmas with “Checkin’ It Twice”. It’s a must-watch premiere and I’ll be live-tweeting over on Twitter as I watch and I hope you’ll join me – FindingDebra2 on Twitter – Let’s talk throughout!
A little about the storyline:
A journeyman hockey player falls for a real estate agent in a career crisis when he’s traded to her hometown and moves into the cottage in her hockey loving family’s backyard.
Starring Kim Matula and Kevin McGarry, this will not disappoint!
I can already feel the magic of this movie, can’t you?

All this talk and now I am ready to decorate for Christmas! I come by this honestly as my mom was known to have a gazillion boxes in the attic filled to the brim with Santas, angels and snowmen. When she passed away years ago, I inherited a good portion of them. So when this time of year rolls around, I gather up my family and remember while we decorate the house.
It’s in decorating the tree when the memories really flood back. Do you have a tree like that? While some families have that Pinterest perfect tree where everything matches, my Christmas tree tells a story. Or a few hundred stories…with each ornament.
There’s the oh-so-breakable red glass ornament from the Great Depression era that was my great-grandmothers. There are the crocheted stocking ornaments from one grandma and the hand-sewn present ornaments from the other. There’s the one I made in elementary school with missing glitter pieces and the Kermit the Frog ornament that takes up so much space. Of course my mom is everywhere on the family tree – from the ones she hand-made when she was newly married to breathtaking glass ornaments she bought me when I was grown. And now there are ornaments that are my daughters and perhaps my favorites – the ones we pick out on our travels around the world.
No matter what, this time of year brings my family together like no other – and that’s important to me.
