While November might not have gone the way I hoped (a virus that just wouldn’t go away and a nasty upper respiratory infection that followed), I’m so happy that December is here. It’s almost time for my extended time off, and I’m looking forward to balancing my time between getting some much needed rest and catch up on some reading.
Since the weather is scheduled to be nice this afternoon, I’m hoping to shoot a few looks to share here on the blog over the next few weeks, and doing some recipe planning for what I hope will be the most delicious, savory scones you’ll ever eat!
In other news, I’ve watched two of the newest Christmas movies on Netflix while I’ve been out of commission, Love Hard (which ended up being really cute) and A Boy Called Christmas (this is a movie you’re going to want to watch with the family!) If any of you have suggestions for newly released Christmas movies (or want to share some of your favorite with me) leave a comment at the bottom of the post!
