Dear Santa, I set out chocolate instead of cookies because maybe you had one to many already. My favorite Anthropologie mirror was great for Christmas decorations and hanging a wreath an stocking with just a little bit of ribbon. I have been gifting Vosges Chocolates all month and I have a huge stash to bring to my family. Emma specifically requested chocolate for the holidays. I am bringing a little something for the flight attendants because they are working on Christmas Eve. Have you ever brought treats for the crew?
I am flying ALL day tomorrow to Florida and in case you are traveling tomorrow too, I am posting these a day early. If you are in Paris or know someone that will be there for the holidays there are some great links in here so please forward them along if you wish.
I am starting to slow things down a bit and get ready for the new year. I have some plans and goals for 2018 and January will be a very busy month. But for now I am planning on spending the next two weeks resting with my family and the daily nap isn’t out of the question. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
