Christmas 2014

What I’m Listening to: ‘Can You Love Me Again’ by John Newman

(Note: I know it’s 2015, but I’ve just now awoken from my sugar coma so hush.)
Another Christmas has come and gone, the gifts are strewn all over the house, there are probably chocolate coins in the carpet and the place smells suspiciously like Love’s Baby Soft. Hmmmm.

That aside, I figured I would share some photos of my Christmas. I’m not turning this into a haul post, because no one actually likes those. (To anyone angrily saying that they do right now, just remember, everyone knows you’re lying. (And you probably smell like Love’s Baby Soft.))

The first thing I want to show y’all is how I wrapped the presents this year. I used three different types of high gloss plaid wrapping paper, soft caramel colored satin bows and handmade brown paper tags. If you’re wondering how long it took me, let’s just say I may be a season further on Bewitched than I was before I started. Let’s also leave it at that.

Oh, right, I nearly forgot about the 11 feet of tree I coated in tinsel strand-by-strand. Pro tip: after 4 feet of covering a giant, dying plant in shiny Mylar threads, you will start to question your sanity. Ignore these thoughts, because if you even try to attempt this, it is far too late for you. Here’s the tree in all it’s glory:

Well, it’s been fun but I gotta go try to make some hot cocoa for my sugar hangover. “Hair of the dog” and all that.
Peace.

What I’m listening to: Somebody’s Baby by Jackson Browne 

The leaves are finally turning down here, turning nature into a splendor of color that the rest of the country experienced 4 months ago. There is no better feeling than getting up in the morning and going to enjoy the outdoors. After all, “The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.” – John Muir.
