Taking a look back on December…

This holiday season really got away from us. With the move and some projects filling our days these last few months, we found ourselves in Target the night before Christmas Eve, picking up a few last minute gifts, and realizing that we’d be gathering with friends the next day for a little celebration. The days kind of began to melt into each other, and it caught up with us Christmas morning, feeling a little under the weather. We decided to cancel our plans and stay inside with some new jazz records spinning, cozied up in our pjs all day. We felt bad not being able to be with those close to us yesterday, but I think a little rest was what our bodies needed. It can sometimes be hard to realize that and just take the time for yourself. We heated up some leftovers from Christmas Eve (pasta and chicken parm) and played a few rounds of Parcheesi, before calling it an early night.

Thankfully the holiday wasn’t a total bust. We did have some fun moments leading up to the 25th: holiday parties, walking around our neighborhood to see the holiday lights with hot cocoa, watching our favorite movies, and Christmas Eve we even had a few friends over to celebrate. We felt a little strange having people over for a holiday with very little set up…the house seemed pretty bare, with rooms just partially decorated and unfortunately the perfectionist side of us kicked in. Once everyone arrived, we quickly realized how silly we were for feeling that way and the laughter, music, food and drinks that filled the night were all we needed. We can’t wait to host more dinner parties here, and see this place come together.

Here are a few photos from December we never got around to sharing on the blog…

We hope everyone had a very happy holiday season! Can’t wait to see what’s in store for the new year!

  1. I know this is an old post, but I would love to know where that black and white plaid blanket is from?
