Good morning from Santa Cruz! We’re getting quite the little storm up this way. The rain combined with the wind is a beautiful sound; we love falling asleep to it. This weekend we cut down our first Christmas tree, and it smells INCREDIBLE. Why we have never done this before I don’t know. I might just sleep on the couch every night, just so I can fall asleep to the smell of the Douglas Fur in our living room. It’s seriously heavenly. I’m watching Elf this a.m., enjoying some California citrus and reflecting on last week. Days just fly by don’t they? Here’s what brought me joy last week:
1. My leftover, homemade turkey tortilla soup (with homemade tortilla strips!).
2. Peppermint mochas.
3. Our Greek feast at work for a birthday.
4. A hot date night out with my love. You really need to see Silver Lining Playbook – amazing.
Have a great week friends – only 23 more days ’til Christmas!
P.S. be sure to check out the decided theme for my 30th in Hawaii later today!
