Friday, December 7


It's that time of year where there actually might be too much going on! I, myself, am feeling a bit like my head could spontaneously combust from holiday overload. I will wear a warm, fuzzy hat and try to keep things in check. Here's whats happening. And this is just the weeknights! More to come...because, frankly, I gotta go to bed and rest up for this stuff.

It is a good thing I live in the midwest where the snow is flying and life is quite a bit slower than out west. I really dig the girls with the trees on their heads! Now that is a trend I gotta start up here! I feel like I am in a social coma. It sure is a warm and cozy place to be, and I am ever so thankful that you and your artful eye are out there looking out for me!
