A Little More Christmas
Thank you all so much for all the sweet comments you left on my last post. It’s amazing how just writing it down and getting it out in the world makes it seem like it isn’t such an overwhemling obstacle anymore. So thank you for listening and letting me know that I’m not alone as I felt I was. Thank you. Really.
OK, so a few days ago we went to pick up my moms tree because she doesn’t have a car big enough to handle a Christmas tree very well. We stopped by my favorite tree lot after I picked up Creamie from her dance class. It was cold, but I came prepared with boots and gloves and and a hat. I just didn’t come prepared for how adorable she would be flouncing through the rows of trees playing hide and seek.
When we found the right tree she very happily offered to help the tree guy carry it to the car. She is so helpful. And I was so thankful that tree guy humored her and let her help him. See, people really are good at heart.
Today this arrived, an early Christmas present from my Dad. Mickey’s Christmas Carol was one of my favorite Christmas movies growing up. I like it about a million times better than the Muppetts version. It has been a happy afternoon watching this with Creamie. But now I’m off to make dinner. Porkchops with Bean and Butternut Chili and homemade cornbread. Because it’s one of my favorite things ever.
Also, I am really in love with my little reindeer necklace. It was my souvenir from our trip this fall. I found it at a teensy little shop in a teensy little town about 100 miles from the nearest grocery store. But, I did a quick search on etsy for a silver reindeer necklace and there are a few similar ones. It is going to be my new go to holiday item this season I think. That and this silver stripey shirt. I got it free with purchase of a dress last Christmas and yesterday was the first time I’ve worn it. See, I used to be scared of wearing things with stripes… what if no one recognized me? (Which has happened. And it was my sister who didn’t recognize me beacuse I was wearing a striped shirt instead of my standard solid color. Which is a post all by itself. Ha!) Be back soon. And with real photographs. I swear. Also, I did an interview over at MessyLa for her blogiversary, go here to check it out.
