Getting Ready

This last week has felt like a blur trying to wrap up last minute projects, posts, holiday shopping, gift wrapping, packing, and trying to take advantage of the holidays! I feel a little disconnected from reality and routine but have decided to take this time to really appreciate the magic of the season with family + friends. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve probably seen what I’ve been up to lately but here is a little recap: 

1 + 2: Christmas decorations about town, like an enormous red bow and twinkling lights.
3 + 4: The perfect plaid scarf and some velvety bows.

5 + 6: Waking up last Saturday and watching the snow fall with Webster, followed by a walk.
7 + 8: Christmas shopping with my leopard mittens + TB crossbody bag {in cream from last year}, and wrapping up my gifts with this, this and this {inspired by Annemarie}.

 9 + 10: Danielle hosted a last minute holiday get together and we made baked brie with pretty little snowflakes, which inspired me to make some snowflake cookies of my own.
11 + 12: Dave and I ventured to Whole Foods to make dinner for out holiday gift exchange. We settled on a little charcuterie spread, with a few crab claws, too!

13 + 14: I have been cozying up in this fisherman sweater and wearing my identity necklace a lot.
15 + 16: I finally {somewhat} organized my jewelry tray and purchased a little Christmas gift for myself, which looks pretty next to my Cocoa + Hearts painting!
Tomorrow I am off to Charleston, so it’s time to pack up and finish any last minute to-do’s that need to be done. Are you finished with your shopping? When are you headed home for the holidays? Can you believe it is Christmas? I am still trying to wrap my head around it.
