Let's Get That Christmas Spirit Going!
In my opinion, once Thanksgiving starts anything related to Christmas is acceptable. All bets are off the table, and the decor and music and snow can begin at any moment for me. In fact, on my drive to Mark's family's house for Thanksgiving I set one of the stations in my car to the Christmas music station. I love this time of year.
Yes, oh yes. I love Christmas time! Tonight I had a little Christmas dinner/gift exchange with two of my best friends. We decided that we could't wait another week, so we made bean burritos, chips and salsa, Christmas tea and cookies, and cranberry spritzers!
It was so much fun (and in my opinion the perfect way to start the month out)! I am so thankful for these ladies and spending a little time with them before finals week was so lovely.

That looks like fun! My girls and I do it the Friday before Christmas. :) Can't wait to finish decorating!ReplyDelete
Such a good call to celebrate starting now, Natalie! I find the longer I wait for those sorts of parties, the more stacked they become...it's much more fun to space them out and savor the Christmas cheer as long as possible! :)ReplyDelete
How fun!! I love that Christmas season lasts all month so that we can enjoy every bit of it-- the gifting, relishing, sipping, baking, and hopefully some time relaxing and in solitude.ReplyDelete
Thank you Bonnie! We love you too!ReplyDelete
