I love blogging and Twitter and (oddly enough) being on Gmail. But this past weekend, it was absolutely divine to quite literally unplug, eat (and eat and EAT), get the house decorated for Christmas, and take more than a few naps in front of our fireplace.
Our meal turned out deliciously (I was especially partial to the mashed potatoes that had close to an entire stick of butter in them), and actual Thanksgiving day was quiet and peaceful. On Friday evening, we had a few friends over to enjoy the newly decorated living room, drink boozy apple cider, and listen to jazzy carols. I count our front living room as one of my favorite spaces in our home to kick back and relax, but when it’s decorated for the holidays, it’s especially cozy. I already know we’re going to be setting up camp in there early and often for the next few months!
The long weekend was just the thing to help me hit the ground running this last week of November. I hope you all enjoyed the time with your friends and families!
