The space below the peep hole is for my sister's card, which will feature my nephew (their Great Dane, Leon), whose face I like to stare at at eye-level all year round.
Another thing making me happy this Christmas is this post. MODG--hilarious and not-your-typical mommy blogger--did this last year & it is truly magical to behold. If you have a need, you post it. If you can give, you respond. I've spent countless hours reading all the posts, as it's so heartening to see people helping out this time of year. Check it out. If you are in need, you will get help. If you can give, you might make someone's Christmas.
Matt and I are heading to Georgia tomorrow to spend Christmas with my family! My dad was generous enough to give us skymiles so we could both make the trip. Even though it will be a bittersweet Christmas because it will be our first without my grandma (and Ignatius), I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone. I think my dreams of having a white Christmas have officially been dashed, however--I checked the weather today, and it's 25 degrees warmer in Georgia than it is here in the Bay. Whaaaaatttttt?
Last thing: my dear bloggy & IRL friend Leeann is having a five-year blogiversary giveaway. FIVE YEARS! I'm contributing a pair of Free People earrings (my fave):
So go enter here! You could win all kinds of good stuff for the holidays. :)
Hope everyone's enjoying the season--next time you here from me, I'll be in the deep South!
