Well, Christmas just flew right by! The month of December was filled with decorations, cookie making, holiday parties, and, of course, presents.
We had a surprising amount of decorations packed up that we found in our storage unit, and displayed across our tiny SF apartment, it was quite the festive scene. But the one missing piece was a tree. Since we were traveling a bit, a real tree didn’t make sense. I picked up this little guy at a dollar store in Japantown, and think he looks downright dapper all dressed up.
And we were gifted a cute gnome to hang out with Gnomeo. His red & green outfit was perfect for our holiday mantle.
I found this clever little Advent calendar, and it took just a few minutes to put together (and stuff with letters for Cory). Some of the paper I already had, but to fill out the variety, I searched for vintage wrapping paper on Flickr.com.
I love the food that comes along with all of the holiday celebrations. Cory and I have a tradition of celebrating together a few days before we head down to our families, and this year we stayed in and cooked for ourselves.
The best cookies are the silliest – and my sister and I decided to dress up our animals (and gingermen) with bowties and ugly sweaters. My favorite? Meta-Moose down there, sporting the Rudolph sweater.
Hoping all of your holiday celebrations were wonderful and safe!
Writing, eating, loving, laughing, and enjoying where life takes me.
