Rob make us espresso Sunday morning after Church and it was delightful.
I forgot how much I loved it. He must do that more often ♥
A gift basket that I had to photograph before I dove into it.
I just love a gift basket! ♥
If you stopped by this is how you would probably find me.
Pj's & glasses, but always lipstick : )

We had our first proper snow last night. Just enough to make everything look like it has a coating of powdered sugar! It's hard believe that only a few short weeks ago this view was a sea of yellow, orange, and gold. Winter is upon us.
I love the first snow of the year. I stepped outside to snap these pictures and the air felt so fresh and clean. It's peaceful as can be. All I could here was our windchimes. Only 26 degrees today. Back inside I go where it's cozy and the coffee it hot.

The one new piece of décor I treated myself to this year. Because I am Mrs. Clause! ♥
I only wish I had elves to help me wrap!
Happy December Days my friends! I hope all is well and you are enjoying your pretty things!
(If you are done with your wrapping, I'm jealous!)
Stay cozy!! xoxo

I'm excited it's finally December so I can start my Advent calendar!! We got two this year and I've had them tucked away for weeks, just dying to crack into them. John has a chocolate one and I got myself (Merry Christmas to me!) this cute English Tea Shop one. I'm obsessed with their teas lately and this calendar has some flavors I haven't tried yet.
I got it off Amazon (here).
It's so darling! ♥
Yesterday's selection was a cozy winter chai. So good! I've already peeked (of course I did) and today's tea will be "festive spice" which by the smell I think will be a cinnamon based tea. It's lovely to have a treat to look forward to everyday. It's the little things, right?!
John said his chocolate yesterday was just "ok" so I'm hoping today's will be a little tastier for him. Speaking of tasty, I wanted to share with you a quick meal I made this week, which by the way is my lunch today. Chicken broccoli and ziti. It's such an easy pasta dish! I top it with toasted breadcrumbs like my mother always does and had a salad on the side. I made a homemade vinaigrette for the first time and that went over very will too : )
Tomorrow there is a Christmas Bizarre at John's school that we are going to. I love seeing all the homemade items. Years ago my mother did craft shows at Christmas time. She would spend months painting and sewing various things to be sold. She loved it, but I know how much work went into it. It was a labor of love, that's for sure. Last year I picked up a few painted ornaments and some fudge. If luck is on my side, the fudge lady will be back this year. Fingers crossed!
Have a wonderful and festive weekend, friends! ♥
Stay cozy! xoox
