fairytale…

our other favorite christmas song… ‘fairytale of new york’ by the pogues and kirsty maccoll.

memories…

this one goes out to my sister. we spent many an hour singing this song growing up (and well into adulthood). sadly we didn’t get to sing it this year since we weren’t together. but there is always next year. right? ‘do they know it’s christmas’ by band aid. 1984.

happy holidays!

thanks to everyone who has taken the time to visit this blog! happy holidays (whatever you celebrate)!

gifts galore

another fun gift that i got this week: i love field notes. and i super love pads of paper and notebooks and calendars and pencils! cannot wait to use them. thanks j.d.!

i couldn’t wait

i admit it. i couldn’t wait. having an unwrapped present in front of me is plain torture. TORTURE. do you hear me? so i busted into what carina sent me. LOVE!! it’s a very cool silver floating frame with a super cool stitched print of a bertoia diamond chair and it’s a chair that i […]

presents!

i think i heart christmas. or maybe it’s the fun packages and cards that arrive? whatever the case, i love it. maybe it will be a good christmas after all. i especially love it when a package arrives from carina! could she wrap any better if she tried? i think not. she is THE BEST.

holiday-ed out.

it’s been great catching up with people all week – jennifer, matt, kristin, etc….and of course seeing people at the get togethers. on sunday my sister “hosted” some of her chapel hill/durham friends in what’s become an annual “invite yourself over to my parent’s house” thing. oh and when i say “hosted” i mean, it […]

remedy diner xmas party

the last week and a half have been a blur of seeing friends, get togethers and parties. oh, and no sleep.  and it seems to have caught up with me today. i feel on the verge of coming down with something like my sister did but hoping that’s not the case though. last week was […]
