Our first weekend in December brought record highs (82 yesterday!) But we also saw the first Sunday in Advent, which was fantastic for many reasons. And I finally completed my “decorating.” I still have mixed emotions about it, but this year I changed up a few things around the house and added my Grandmother’s silver angels. I think they are very nicely designed and of course have sentimental value. I’m surprised that I almost passed on taking them.
I’m also glad that it’s citrus season. I could eat my weight in cuties. And our landlord brought us some fresh tangerines from their tree. So good and juicy you have to eat them over the sink!
I hope to be fully present to the next few weeks as we navigate another round of finals, holiday consumerism, and year-end work stuff.
These are a few iphone snaps of the holiday happenings in our home…
