Christmas Highlights

Merry day-after Christmas everyone! I hope you had a lovely day with your friends and family!

A few highlights from the Christmas season - My good friend Morgan's amazing Christmas Santa sweatshirt, my brown-paper and bakers twine wrapping job, a cup of tea from our advisories annual Christmas dinner and a few of my favorite Christmas vinyls, including the absolute best - Carpenters, Christmas Portrait (which I've included a Spotify box below for).  In celebration of the day after Christmas, the Anderson household is having a Christmas movie marathon including "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" and any other Christmas classic you can think of while eating crepes - cheers to relaxing and taking a break from the busyness of the year!

Full Christmas blog post to come soon!

Spent a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend at the cabin up north - puppies frolicking in the snow, relaxing in the warm cabin where the fireplace is always lit, visiting a local barn's foal, and of course, enjoying the mandatory Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.  Excited to be back up there for Christmas in a couple of weeks! Miss the puppies already.

Here's to a hopefully not too stressful couple of weeks before christmas!

Tuesday Tea & Tunes

Happy Tuesday! On this chilly December evening, I'm sitting at my favorite coffee shop enjoying a cup of hot tea, reading "Beowulf," while in between trying to catch up on some photo editing from over Thanksgiving break.  And of course, there's music to go with all of that - lately I've really been into "Cults" - an indie pop band from New York. I actually saw them in concert once - they opened for Vampire Weekend back in June and I had no idea who they were - funny how music grows on you huh? 

Click below to check them out.  I've shared five of my favorite tracks.

Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week - Thanksgiving post coming soon!
