It really has been Golden around here.
The hubs and I have had an incredibly productive and festive weekend. We are redoing our office, so we got rid of my desk and our futon and bought two new shelves and a new desk. We also picked up our Christmas tree and got it all decorated. We’re having a Prom themed holiday party (Seriously. SO excited) this weekend, so we’re trying to get everying ready. I didn’t quite get our holiday cards addressed (I didn’t even get started actually), but at least we have them.
I’m so happy to be entering one of my favorite months, and rounding out a life changing year for me. 2012 has really been incredible, and I’m looking for to all the awesome adventures that are headed our way in 2013. December is filled with my favorite things: holidays, family, fun, parties, secret santa, and New Years. I hope this month is a balance of celebrating and reflection.
In honor of all the celebrating, my December is going to be filled with sparkles! Who’s with me?!
Just like with Golden November, I’m going to be focusing my energies in the same key areas I love (basically color, being present, good music, cooking, reading, crafting, traveling, learning, and taking pictures). In case you missed it, here’s what my Golden November looked like, and here’s my recap).
And this is December:
My rules are:
Theme (Be): Reflective
Music (listen): Holiday. I’ll be posting my weekly Sunday song lists like last month.
Book (read): still working by way through 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami I’m really enjoying it so far. I also want to make myself a 2013 to-read list this month.
DIY (craft): presents!
Travel: Birmingham, Alabama (we’re going to go up for a few days to visit my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins while we’re home in Southern Alabama)
Life list (aurora): guitar lessons. Y’all, Viet has agreed to give me guitar lessons. I am thrilled and terrified.
