It’s not really a story. It’s my life. A tale of a girl who left home. Began a life of her own in a new town far far away from her beloved California. It wasn’t a new crazy choice considering I had already lived across the Atlantic Ocean in my twenties. But it was new, and unfamiliar and wildly exciting. And little did I know, it was where my life would land and where I would build a dream.


I'm a wee bit hungover this a.m. But I deserve it. See my insta stories for proof. Anyway, on the contrary, I don't know about you, but I'm freaking excited. It's almost Christmas. And no, I'm not going to cry that it's almost here and over, I'm going to rejoice that a week from today, I'll be in my sweats with my kiddos and husband and nowhere to go but here. This year has gone by so fast and I'm ok with it because I feel ready for what's ahead. But enough of that, here's a few items for your husband to buy you because we know he always waits to the last minute. Also a few items for the littles and the cutest coffee mugs for your kids teachers, the bus driver, the pre-school teachers, your pilates instructor,  you name it. 


I know. But here's the thing. I'm Christmas-ing my way through the weekend by decorating the tree, lighting the fire and watching my twins break ornaments. And it's all the things. Joy is contagious and since my parents are here and my sister and her family are coming, I'm getting a head start on all things Christmas all the while it's Thanksgiving. Because someone once said if it makes you happy, then do it.
