Happy almost Christmas! It is my most favorite time of year! These past few weeks have been flying by and this year the work just didn’t seem to slow down. Which I suppose having a lot of work is something to be thankful for! However, I am just about ready to wrap everything up and settle down for a few days.
Back in November I had the amazing opportunity to film with Handy.com, a home service company, about their Christmas tree delivery service! In select cities, including Austin!, you can get your tree delivered right to your house. They will even set it all up for you. Check out the video and how I decorate my Christmas tree with my Great-Grandmother’s jewelry.
The holidays always have a way of getting me back in the kitchen. Something about this time of year has me wanting to bake up a storm and break out the fancy dishes. Ok maybe not the fancy dishes part but I’ve definitely been logging a few more hours in the kitchen lately. I’ve always loved gingerbread so I decided that this year it was about time to go all out and make a cake!
Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, no? Last year I was a bit of grinch during the holiday season and this year I was determined to not letting anything get in the way of my holiday spirit, but alas I still don’t even have a tree up! I did help my mom put hers up while I was at home during Thanksgiving, but still no tree at my own place. Sadly, I am not sure if there will be a tree this year. There are lots of coming and goings at my house this year. One of my roomies and dearest friends is moving away, bah humbug! I am so excited for her because it is such a great move and hello! to one of my favorite cities, San Francisco! While I am secretly shedding tears of sadness and excitement, I am also planning to take full advantage of some couch surfing in the coming months. You know, somebody’s gotta be there to help ease the transition, right?
