Happy Almost Winter
The Holiday Season is HERE! How is it that I'm not prepared? I had a nice four day weekend to celebrate Thanksgiving and Daughter's birthday. Sissy's birthday was yesterday! LOVE! My cousin's birthday is on the 21st. All wonderful winter celebrations.
I think of the Christmas season as coinciding with winter. I love to enjoy a cozy fire and cup of tea when it's cold outside. Of course, I know that winter doesn't officially start until the 21st, but if you are from a state with four seasons...you know what I mean.
This year Thanksgiving was spent traveling to Wilmington to see our girl. I took my box of Christmas cards to write...but didn't write them. The cards are super cute, though.
Getting back to work after the Thanksgiving travel makes it tougher to actually do the Christmas decorating thing. Although, that's really not a very good excuse. I really haven't figured out how I want to decorate.
A big reason I haven't really started to cozy up for winter is that our temperatures are really incredibly mild. The past weekend we had temperatures in the 70s. This was delightful for spending time walking around downtown. Look what this week's highs are.
Don't get me wrong, I am not wishing for ice or snow or even freezing temperatures. I'm actually quite happy with these mild ones. I'm just noticing that it's different.
So, regardless of the weather...I'm preparing for the Happiest Winter!
