Well, friends, November has come and gone, and December is here! We are officially in the last month of 2015. There are so many magical things about this time of year- the smells, sights, and sounds of Christmas are so comforting and sweet that we often long for this season to linger. Nevertheless, this month is sure to fly by, and we will soon begin another year! These are special times, however, and I want to cherish them and continue to cultivate a grateful heart. Here's what's currently going on in my neck of the woods:
Wishing: Right now I am wishing for a few snow days! They usually don't come in December, but a girl can dream, right?
Remembering: I have been very reflective in the past few weeks as I've thought about how different my life is today than it was at this time last year. Now I'm a wife, aunt, daughter-in-law, and sister-in-law!
Wrapping: I am not the best gift wrapper, but I do enjoy putting things under the tree. I haven't gotten all of my gifts yet, but I'm getting there, and when they come, I'll be excited to wrap them and place them under our tree.
Baking: Christmas just calls for baking, does it not? I've made some glazed pecans to snack on, and those are delicious. A couple weeks ago I told Ror that I would make him some banana bread, so I'm on the hunt for a nice, light recipe for that, too.
Decorating: Growing up, our family always had an artificial tree, but this year Ror and I got a real, live Christmas tree! It has been so fun to decorate our tree and our cozy little home for the holidays.
I'm linking up with Anne and Jenna today. What are you up to currently?
