CHRISTMAS SWEATERS!!! Pretty, ugly, festive, colorful…I love them all! Wearing them and looking at them makes me so happy. For some reason, they make the holidays feel magical (along with many other things). If it was socially acceptable I would wear one every single day.

Just in case you had a hankering to wear one of these sweaters, I have found a few for you!


The temperature is dropping, it’s the beginning of December, and it is now the perfect time to cuddle up in a blanket and drink hot cocoa from a fabulous mug! The combo of the two is perfect for a cozy night in with loved ones. I have picked out a few of each for you to enjoy!




I hope you are having a wonderful start to December! I can’t wait to share some holiday posts!

Im sure everyone is exhausted from the festivities of yesterday and exhausted from all the black friday shopping going on…so I will just leave you with some wonderful music to enjoy while recovering!

This band creates amazing music…and the video is just awesome! I know you thoroughly enjoyed it, and will be listening to it all day!

This picture takes me back to this moment, when I just stood overlooking this beautiful place and feeling so much gratitude for everything in my life.

Today is Thanksgiving, and a day to remember to be thankful…and eat food. This day really puts into perspective how much I have to be thankful for, and that I should remember this every day; not just the day we celebrate it. So I will just give you 30 things so you don’t feel obligated to read a never ending post.
