Merry Christmas

I’ve got one day left at work ¬†before I can sit back and enjoy the season. I’m sure the news could live one day without me… but this year I’m not that lucky ūüėČ

But I wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas before engaging in some serious family time.

Gift wrapping

Oh my god, it’s almost Christmas Eve. Three more days of work and then I’ll be off to a nice Christmas holiday. I hope you’ve bought most of your presents by now, and that gift wrapping is your next move. I’ve collected a few beautiful examples. Have a lovely Thursday and if you’ve got the time listen to Tina Dickow’s beautiful version of Driving Home for Christmas.

My weekend

This weekend has been all about friends, family and Christmas. Saturday was the first Christmas lunch of the year in our home. A bunch of lovely friends and their kids came over yesterday. They all brought some food, and we talked, laughed, played Christmas music, ate lovely food and cakes, while the kids played and ate some food and candy.

Then we all went down to see Santa Claus light the huge Christmas tree in the city center, and danced around the tree afterwards. Then some of us headed back for more hot drinks and cookies.

When everyone left – we cleaned out most of it, read to the kids, kissed them goodnight, and watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s before heading to bed. It was a wonderful day.

Today, I’ve been working. I was a bit behind on the Blogging Your Way course reading, but now that’s done, and I’m ready for another week.

I’ll go look through a lot of boxes of Christmas decorations and make myself a huge cut of coffee now. Have a lovely night out there.

Getting ready for December

November has been hard work so far. On top of my full-time job, I’m attending another Blogging Your Way class. It’s yet again an amazing experience, and I’m trying to find time to change a few things on Espresso Moments and read through the course material at night. But it is worth it.

But I’m also busy getting ready for my all time favourite month of the year. December is magical – and I love to get cozy inside and decorate our home. I’m inspired by these pictures from Rosendahl. What do you think?
