My Kind of Holiday

I love the holidays. I could listen to Christmas music over and over, makes me feel at home and just plain happy.

I am currently in the phases of preparing for a small holiday party this Monday night (yeah, don’t know why a Monday, I guess a case of the Mondays always could use a cure.) Pinterest has once again sucked me into planning the entire party on a secret board. Let’s just say this party is going to be pretty great, not gonna lie. I will be sure to post pictures once all is said and done.

 

Any who on another exciting note… I want to informally announce that there are big changes coming for this blog! It’s a small ways off and I can’t really say much, but that it will be amazing! Keep a weather eye out….. 😉

Finally, to the point of my post. This encompasses everything I am loving this holiday season…. enjoy!
