Happy December everyone! After a whirlwind November that included a trip to Montreal and a week of hosting family for Thanksgiving, we turn the calendar page to the last month of the year.
To kick off this festive month, I wanted to showcase the advent calendar I made last year for our house. Unlike the advent calendar I created for my brother this year that I made with beautiful Heather Bailey felt, I used only materials on hand at the time to create ours.
Despite the fact that Steve and I are in our twenties, this fun decoration makes the whole month of December a little more fun. It’s exciting to have a little present every other day to open.
- Yesterday, in an attempt to find some holiday wear without spending money, I scavenged my jewelry boxes and couldn’t believe it when I found the Tiffany heart necklace Steve gave me for our first anniversary together. I thought I had lost it several years ago and am absolutely delighted it reappeared.
- I joined a new gym yesterday. It’s time to reign in the eating and start working up a sweat a few times a week. My current gym membership has not been motivating me, so hopefully this new place will do the trick!
- Steve and I have some busy weekends this month. We just planned a last-minute trip to DC in two weeks and will be going to Boise and New York City at the end of December. What a busy time of year.
