Ten days, everyone!
I hope your Christmas lists have been sent to the big man in the North, and your Advent candles are burning low!
We have had arrivals of all wonderful sorts going on here, and even more to come! We have wrapped presents from my family under our mantle (substitute Christmas Tree this year…I pushed my festive limits on Mr. Scrooge this year) from my family, with even more to come!
Gosh, how blessed are we?!
Even better, I have already gotten to open a gift! My super awesome friend, Lizzy, sent me a Christmas package all the way from the states. She really is one of the best, most thoughtful friends around! And not to mention crafty!
She sent a crocheted mug koozie, complete with button, as well as aloe vera infused festive fuzzy socks for my poor tourist feet (Jimmy is thankful for those too!). Finally, she sent a tote bag that is so perfectly me! It says “here’s to the creative ones” in gold script. It is a perfect size for small grocery runs, so I don’t have to take my huge bag-lady tote anymore!
Thanks so much, dear Lizzy! You are seriously the best! My feet are so happy, my mugs are toasty, and my grocery runs are stylin!
Our best upcoming arrival is our friend Leah, coming in on Thursday from Spain to spend the holidays with us! We couldn’t be more excited for some friendly faces to share the holiday with!

bottomless mulled wine, plates of cookies, and candle light for the short days!
