glimpses of december

december, please slow down.
i love you so much and don’t
want you to end! every day of you 
has been full of events and 
festivities, and i love our full,
happy calendar this month.
you have flown by faster
than ever! we go home
t o n i g h t for the 
holidays, so before all of
those events– here is a
 little glimpse of our december. 
^^ found this year’s ornament 
to add to our collection!
last week we had a serious california cold snap,
and i had to use this scarf to hide the fact that i was
wearing my hubby’s huge sweatshirt underneath
my coat to work.. for 4 days in a row. oops! 
now we’re back to 70°, that’s more like it.
hi nordy, you sure are pretty this time of year!
and you are too, macy’s.
^^ homemade butternut squash soup was calling
my name all month long. nothing like cozy 
comfort foods this time of year!
grilled cheese + soup=  yes.
^^ add cinnamon rolls to that, even better.
SF christmas trolleys >>> better than anything.
favorite thai place with our favorite friends.
^^ christmas cards all addressed and sent!
as long as we were addressing and sending
out all of our christmas cards, i got around to
sending personalized thank you cards
to all of our great sponsors!! ^^
^^ looking back on the books i read this year
it’s a rule to make this at least
once per december
early christmas gifts from sweet friends
the city still sparkles even in december.
i have almost all of our gifts done, 
now just need to get to the fun part..
the wrapping.
happy december from union square!
now, off to have a white christmas.
