Happy Wednesday, m' dears! I'm currently blogging in ten-minute increments as I bake cookies. Over the past 72 hours, I will have made twelve dozen treats to be shared and distributed to Max's preschool, our neighbors, and the postal workers. At this point, I *think* I'd be happy to never see a dough ball or frosting again, but we'll see if that holds up next week. News flash, it won't! Anywho, in an attempt to stay focused on the Christmasy confections, I'm keeping today's post short and sweet with a list of things that have brought me joy lately. Here goes...
Winter coats with pink lining. Need I say more?
Finding wired gingham ribbon at Home Goods for a dirt-cheap price.
When Max *accidentally* falls asleep in my bed. Snoring and snuggles galore!
Two words: WINTER PEONIES!!! Trader Joes and Produce Junction FTW.
Dusting the bookshelf in Max's bedroom, only to find he's aptly rearranged a letter on the letterboard.
Decorations, crafts, and wrapping, which require endless amounts of pom-poms.
My desire to recreate the amazing letters from Anthropologie's stunning holiday displays.
Flyboy betting Max to try on one of his baby shirts and the roaring laughter that came with it. Hehe!
When you look closely at most of these photos, you'll see pine needs errrywhere. 'Tis the season.
The pink collar on my mom's new coat. That combo is bananas! Also, her Frances Valentine Satchel.
Waking up to the tiniest bit of snow (practically melted), but Max wants to bundle up and play in it.
When the light shines through the front windows and the shadows look like a C-17 tail.
The notion that we'll get to spend 13 days with Flyboy (and then he heads back to training).
I'll never tire of the paint color we used for our front door. She's cheerful AF!
Mixing large amounts of hot pink with red to make Christmas decor feel extra fun.
Preschool parties planned with minimal effort, but kids find the festivities magical anyway.
Alright, enough about me. What brings you joy these days? I'm dying to know.
