i'm snuggled at home
in my robe
with a mug of hot chocolate
and so much to be thankful for
my family
my bennett
my friends
my life
my faith
my health
bennett's health
...i could just keep on going

i hope that everyone has a wonderful
and turkey-filled thanksgiving day

today was a wonderful fall day
the weather was beautiful
so bennett and i went to the park
to eat lunch
and read one of my favorite christmas short stories
(which i think everyone should read)
and we are now sitting in a warm coffee shop
drinking hot christmas beverages
doing greek homework (benn)
and blogging/dilly dallying (me)
and tonight i get to decorate our christmas tree with my roommate
and then go see bennett play a house show.

christmas is so close
so close

p.s. i watched cold mountain with bennett last night
and it is a phenomenal movie.
if you haven't seen it, you should probably go rent it this weekend.
just saying.

happy holidays

can you believe it?
thanksgiving is a week from today!
and that means that christmas is so close
and christmas is my favorite
because the music makes me almost cry
and everything looks so much more beautiful under christmas lights
and egg nog is just so wonderful
and christmas parties are the only parties i like
and i get to sleep under the decorated tree...

halloween is a wee bit overrated

i ended up having a weird halloween
we didn't really do anything we had planned on
(besides the pumpkin fest which was wonderful)
but we at least dressed up for a little bit
i was a garden gnome
he was a cuman
(which is a cat-human...don't ask)
so, that's that.
christmas, here we come
