So here we are...December 1st. That day when we're like what? what?? And brace ourselves for the whirlwind. It's really our choice whether it's a whirlwind or not though. We can say no to things we don't really need to do. We can online shop. We can carve out quiet moments. We don't have to do all the stuff that other people are doing. But here we are....December. I'm ready.
Before we move on to Silver Bells and jolly everything, I want to look back at November one more time....and um, October since I forgot to do that a month ago :)
Our November went really fast. Our feast we beautiful though and we took some time to remember and slow down.
And October? Well, since I was all pregnant and stuff I didn't really feel motivated to take a ton of photos. But I did manage to pull together a little photo sesh of these three. Precious memories.
Today we are getting our tree! We usually do two, but this year we're just getting one. I'll explain all that later. We're going to set it up and string the lights. Then tonight we're making fun finger foods and appetizers and having ginger ale in champagne flutes and ringing in the season in style as we trim our tree.
This morning we're laying back...eating fresh banana bread and watching cartoons.
I have a couple hours carved out as well to steal away and be quiet by myself and meditate on some things I've had anxiously laying on my heart this week.
That's my weekend. How about yours?
Here's to a holly jolly December!!
