happy december, dear friends
the month of joy, giving, lights, coziness, and time with precious loved ones is here!!
i am currently enjoying...

LISTENING| a very she & him christmas has been on non-stop in my car … i can't get enough of this fantastic duo. 

WATCHING|  hmm. i don't really watch much regarding shows - esp. around this time of year. however, i am excited to volunteer at the holiday stroll in downtown matthews saturday and always love watching the families embracing the christmas spirit. 

WRAPPING| my loved ones know well … this is my favorite part of the holiday season. i adore wrapping and have a new idea for this year… i can't wait to share it with you all soon. stay tuned, loves. 

MAKING|  i made a fun advent calendar with friends last sunday night- details coming soon! i also hope to make my mom's pumpkin roll before the 25th - above is my sister's version- sent from st. louis <3 so proud of her. we used to help bake these with our mom growing up- the flour everywhere, the warm towels, the tasting throughout, listening to kenny and dolly {oh 'hard candy christmas,' i adore you.} - so many memories. 

ANTICIPATING| closing on our first house on the 15th, enjoying a class trip to charleston {christmas time in the cutest city ever- yes, please} and traveling to ohio to spend time with my family and friends on the 22nd - lots of excitement currently in the air.
