one of the simple pleasures of the holiday season for me is decorating for the season. i look forward to it each year and we have made new traditions each year. we love picking out our tree, turning on a christmas record, drinking eggnog, and stringing lights. these pictures are really poor quality and it may not be what the holiday season is truly about, but it sure feels festive. merry christmas!
we are going to nyc!! so excited to visit with our great friends and see all the sights. we are in need of some time away; we might even get to see some snow! does anyone have any recommendations on places to visit, things to see, or places to eat or drink? we have a shamefully long list of places, but would love to hear your thoughts.
does anyone else use pinterest for gift inspiration? i worked really hard on these gift guide pin boards…and then got too busy to post them…. but if any of you are procrastinators like me, then you still have some holiday shopping to do! follow my gifts board if you still need some inspiration for christmas or follow my holiday board for decor, party, and cocktail ideas. there are some awesome items….i would be thrilled to receive any of them!
has anyone else been a tad busy lately….? i have not been updating and have missed it! this week has been full of office parties, shopping, and gift wrapping. we decorated the house and hosted our christmas party this week and i will be sharing more on these tomorrow. for most people, this is the week spent getting that last christmas gift and gift wrapping. i have always loved wrapping presents – i am detail oriented….the love and time put into the wrapping are another part of the gift. gift wrapping is best while watching a movie or listening to christmas tunes. here are some of my holiday wrapping essentials that i keep in my studio year round and have ready for the holidays.
