Seriously, y'all...where did fall go? I feel like I haven't stopped going since we got back from the honeymoon! The past three months have been full to the brim with hangouts, craft nights, dinners, parties and working on the house. Add to that the fact that we're having our basement waterproofed in January and you've got my life right now. For some reason, this year feels like it's busier than normal and that's left me a little sad lately. I feel like Christmas will be here before I know it and I haven't even really gotten a chance to savor this holiday season. I really love being busy because I do get bored really easily, but I'd like to just take a week and not have any obligations so that I can just catch up on the holiday things that I love to do.
This past weekend we went to Kansas City to do some holiday shopping. We always end up going to either Lawrence or Kansas City in December for some reason...it's kinda when we get the itch to see something new again I think. It was a great weekend and I loved seeing the Plaza all lit up. It reminded me of Christmases in Austin and in St. Louis. We drank good coffee and ate good food and almost froze because it was so cold outside.
I'm hoping that I can try to bring a little more quiet to my life here in the next few days. I'd love to watch some holiday movies, drink some cocoa and maybe craft a project or two just for me. Of course I still have so much more on my list that I need to be doing before any of that can get done. But maybe...it can wait.
Here's to finding some time to unwind this holiday season.
