Christmas Love At Home

This is a story about a girl named Jennifer. There was a time in her life when she realized that her house became her home. Jennifer woke up in the morning Christmas day and she smelled bacon, scrambled eggs, hot chocolate and home fries. When Jennifer went downstairs she was so distracted by the aroma of the food she forgot it was Christmas morning. She saw the tree all lit up and loaded with presents underneath. She felt the warmth of the fireplace on her toes. Jennifer had moved a couple weeks before Christmas and she still didn’t feel comfortable in her surroundings. When her family started doing all of their Christmas traditions (they did at their other house) that’s when Jennifer started to feel the new house was becoming her home.
